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. The results will then be assessed.
The operations kickoff included a VIP visit from Empire CEO Alex Underwood and Mining and Industry Minister Nicole Manison. Minister Manison commented that she was looking forward to hearing results of the production testing program, “It was great to see the site and the hard work going on to progress onshore gas in the Territory,” Ms Manison said. “Seeing Empire’s work first hand, they demonstrated their commitment to sustainable environmental practices, safety and working with Traditional Owners.”
It was great to see our Principal Engineer, Kelvin Wuttke, didn’t shy away from the cameras when he led the VIP visit – looking good Kelvin!!

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.
2021 sees the commencement of planning and operations for Leigh Creek Energy. Following the successful completion of the Pre-commercial Demonstration (PCD) phase, inGauge Energy has been commissioned by Leigh Creek Energy to plan and execute the subsurface engineering phase of the Leigh Creek Energy Project (LCEP).
Empire Energy has just announced the acquisition of an operated 82.5% interest in five tenements from Pangaea across the Beetaloo Sub-basin. This is transformational news for Empire and follows the outstanding result of the Carpentaria 1 discovery well in their Northern Territory acreage in late 2020.
