Carpentaria-2H Drilling Commences
Empire Energy Group Limited (“Empire”) is pleased to announce that it has started drilling the C-2H well in Empire’s 100% owned and operated EP187, located in the Beetaloo Sub-basin, Northern Territory.
The C-2H well is located 11 kilometres north of the successful Carpentaria-1 well and on the same 2D seismic line. C-2H is targeting the same middle Velkerri Formation shale units as Carpentaria-1 although mapped over 200 metres deeper.
With the additional depth, greater formation pressure and a moderately drier gas composition is anticipated. The continuity of the shale markers within the seismic section between the two well locations provide confidence in the depth prognosis at C-2H.
After completion of drilling and formation evaluation, C-2H will be cased and suspended prior to rig release. Empire’s technical team will then analyse the results and plan the C-2H fracture stimulation and flow testing program to be undertaken following the wet season.
