Prior to the actual drilling of the well the entire proposed Permitted site must be prepared. This preparation includes the building of a road to the site, the complete clearing of the entire drill site platform and equipment set-up. Upon completion and well hook-up all trees and grounds are restored and replanted according with EPA regulation.

The rotary rig will drill the well to the desired depth where the gas formation is located. Knowledge of the depth and expected pay zone is derived from the logs, and records, of the nearest wells to that location.
