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.

inGauge Energy has started a project with a major Australian gas producer to review and update their well integrity management system. The aim of the project is to be much more pre-emptive and targeted in response to well integrity issues to ensure money is spent resolving issues rather than simply re-confirming known problems.
Empire today updated the market with images of the flare at Carpentaria 1. This is a particularly exciting time for Empire as years of work starts to show itself in gas to surface. Tom (inGauge Completion Engineer) is getting to be an expert with the inGuage drone, taking some fantastic images of the flare shining forth on site, as the sun sets over the vast expanse of the Empire acreage. Tom was quoted as saying that using the drone was the only way of keeping Kelvin out of the photos.
inGauge is proud to confirm commencement of Empire Energy’s fracture stimulation program at its Carpentaria-1 site in the Beetaloo Basin. The fracture stimulation program will test four productive target zones. Stimulation and subsequent flow test operations will be undertaken over the coming month.
