Empire looks to North Erregulla Deep prospect By Martin Kovacs, 28 Apr 2017

Empire Oil & Gas has reported a prospective resource estimate (mid-case) for the North Erregulla Deep prospect, in EP 368/EP 426 in the Western Australian onshore Perth Basin, of 55 Bcf gas and 3.55 MMbbl oil.

Empire advised that a single vertical well at North Erregulla Deep is expected to test the Lockyer North Erregulla trend shallow oil and deep gas potential, with the drilling of North Erregulla Deep or Lockyer Deep anticipated to commence in the fourth quarter.

“We are excited about the North Erregulla Deep target due to the size of the potential oil and gas volumes and ability to test both the primary and secondary objectives with a single vertical well,” Empire Chief Executive Officer Ken Aitken commented.

“We expect to drill the highest-impact prospect in late-Q4 2017, subject to partner and regulatory approval and funding.”
