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!!
