All other wells on the site were shut in as a precaution and the site was evacuated.

An emergency response zone was established with roadblocks set up and air monitoring in place.

OGC says the well has since been capped on December 31, which concluded the incident.

However, the investigation continues and the company is fully cooperating with the Commission.
