Pétrolia says that the drilling of Haldimand 4 will resume by mid-November. The drilling rig, already on the site, is fully functional and the drilling team is expected on site in the coming days. The drilling of this well will make it possible to validate the commercial viability of the Haldimand deposit.
Due to the change of government and the adoption of a new regulatory framework, the operations on Anticosti Island, planned to start in May 2014, commenced in July 2014. To date, four stratigraphic core holes have been completed and one or two more will be completed in the coming days. In addition, the sites for the 15 core holes have been prepared, which will expedite the resumption of operations next spring.
