Helis President, David Kerstein, has personally reached out to appropriate parish officials to notify them of the company's decision to terminate the project, as well as to business and civic leaders who voiced their support for the project and in many cases withstood significant strong criticism from vocal opponents of the project and to St. Tammany's prospective role in securing American energy independence.
"While we are disappointed the well was unsuccessful, exploratory projects such as this one involve a substantial risk of failure which we accept as part of our business. We can terminate this project knowing that we conducted our operations without a single complaint regarding noise, traffic or environmental impacts," said Kerstein. "Throughout this long and often arduous process, Helis Oil & Gas set a new standard for proactively addressing even the most unfounded concerns, expending far more time and money than required to reassure the public of our ability to conduct our work safely, protect the environment and parish quality of life. To the letter, Helis employees and contractors conducted themselves professionally and helped the company keep its commitments to the people of St. Tammany," Kerstein said.
