DNRME has management responsibility for the ex-Linc Energy Hopelands UCG site near Chinchilla in Queensland since the Qld government took over the control of the site in 2016. Since that time inGauge has assisted DNRME with monitoring well design and well remediation and integrity projects. For this assignment inGauge teamed up with Silver City Drilling to drill and complete 7 new reservoir monitoring bores designed to monitor the Macalister coal seams and the overlying Springbok sandstone. The project is part of the ongoing expansion of the groundwater monitoring network. The wells were successfully completed with downhole gauges and low volume double-valve type sampling pumps to enable the collection of fluid samples for the duration of the monitoring program.
