Beetaloo Operations Update
As previously announced, the stimulation has been designed to utilise several fluid mixes to assess which design results in the best production performance to enhance Beetaloo specific completion designs. The C-2H well production test will also provide an early production type curve and a better understanding of gas composition for development planning.
A period of flowback of hydraulic stimulation fluids is anticipated prior to gas production as each of the treated stages progressively cleans up. Empire will then undertake an extended production test for up to 90 days.
Empire remains on track to drill the Carpentaria-4V vertical well in the Carpentaria East area of EP187 and drill, hydraulically stimulate and flow test the Carpentaria-3H horizontal well on the same well pad as Carpentaria-2H later this year.
Empire is well funded for this active program following the recent placement with current cash at bank of $43.9 million (excluding Share Purchase Plan proceeds which will be determined in the coming days).
