In February 2022, InGauge Energy was contracted to plan and execute drilling operations on Wellesley 2, an exploration gas well in Queensland. Easternwell Rig 101 was mobilised after civils operations were completed. The well was drilled in just over 12 days from spud to rig release. All operational evaluation objectives were successfully completed, including multiple electric line logging operations and a drill stem test. The well was decommissioned on the 12th of February. Minimal downtime (<4%) was recorded throughout the execution phase of operations.
inGauge looks forward to continue our next project with Lakes Blue Energy later in 2022.
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.
