Beginning in February of 2021, inGauge oversaw the workover of ten wells including nine pump changeouts, perforating of 4 wells and data gathering from one for Galilee Energy. The wells were all located in the Glenaras Lateral Pilot area and were executed with rig contractor Wild Desert, Apex Pumps, and MPC Kinetic wireline services. So far the enhancement programme has been a success with pressure drawdown observed in the area resulting in an increase of natural gas rates close to 80 Mscfd. The data-gathering programme on Glenaras 08 also demonstrated a measurable pressure drawdown 7km away from the pilot area indicating a significant lateral reach of the pilot area.
 
The completions programme was a dynamic environment with a review of each well’s production within days of changeout. This created a feedback loop that led to optimising completion designs during the execution of the programme. Fortunately, Dylan Shaw our Well Engineer, was able to quickly adapt and ensure smooth operations. He was also invited to work several days a week in the Galilee office’s and was welcomed as part of the team.
 
Thank you to Wild Desert, Apex Pumps, MPC Kinetic wireline services and our OCR Ray Kirby for conducting all operations with zero HSE incidents. We couldn’t have had a better team for the job.

Well Integrity Gets Targeted

Well Integrity Gets Targeted

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.

Gas Flaring at Carpentaria 1

Gas Flaring at Carpentaria 1

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.
