inGauge was selected by Comet Ridge to execute the two well appraisal program in their new tenement Mahalo North (ATP 2048). The program started with the vertical core well Mahalo North 1. Coring went smoothly with good recovery rates and high-quality coal. Within the 314m total depth of the well, approximately 9m of coal was intercepted. Mahalo North 2 was then drilled as a dual lateral intercept. The first lateral successfully intercepted Mahalo North 1 (the future production well) and continued to drill to 1735m, giving close to 1300m of lateral within the coal seams. A second lateral was then drilled to 1152m giving a total of almost 1900m inseam. This is a fantastic result for Comet Ridge and was executed without incident.
During the campaign, we utilised wireline coring, mixed casing strings (including 7″ fibreglass), geosteering and interception, sumpless drilling practices, and wireline MDT testing. As an engineering powerhouse, we can tailor the right solutions for your next campaign to get the data you need or the drilling accuracy you require to achieve your goals.
Thank you to all our Contractors who worked to deliver: Silver City Drilling, Schlumberger Wireline and Pathfinder, NOV Coring, WellPro Cementing, AMC Oil and Gas, and MPC Kinetic.

inGauge is pleased to parter with Project Kindy, a small charity working with children in Africa. inGauge provided funding for a well to be drilled to provide fresh water for a kindergarten and also to its associated village community.
A geothermal energy provider based in the Philippines requested a review to identify gaps in current geothermal subsurface assessment, engineering planning and execution practices, systems and processes. inGauge completed the initial review against current Oil and Gas industry systems, practices and processes.
Lakes Oil N.L., the oldest Australian focused oil and gas exploration company, changed its name to Lakes Blue Energy N.L. in 2020 to better reflect its focus on producing cheap, clean, dispatchable energy from alternative sources (eg Hydrogen, waste heat, compressed air technologies, etc) beyond the traditional oil and gas space.
