Sniff testing the pressure test.......

    Pressure testing...? Seriously, how can shutting the well in determine where any leaks are ?
Why blur the lines with changing definitions..? .pressure testing, integrity testing, same difference.

One of my main curiosities over the past 3 months was how produced sand would figure into this scenario.
Now we get reports of possible collapses downhole....duh.....didn't see that coming, how could you possibly think that over 3 months, that some sort of subsidence would not happen ?

Bore collapses when drilling original well, bore starts to slough after drilling was halted for storm evacuation...
....brittle shale over sand/sandstone........
 here we sit, waiting to hear the next news ....I would put money on more delays and pressure testing.
