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.

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.
