EMPIRE ENERGY: Australian junior firms up potential of Oz shale acreage

Empire Energy also in talks to secure drilling rig for delayed exploration well as it prepares to resume operations in Australia's Northern Territory.

Australian junior Empire Energy has received a boost for its Northern Territory exploration prospects, with Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc (NSAI) carrying out an independent assessment of its Beetaloo sub-basin and McArthur basin acreage.

The assessment by NSAI places the best estimate prospective gas resources across Empire’s acreage at nearly 13.5 trillion cubic feet and placed the overall best estimate prospective resource volume at nearly 2.3 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

“This is a substantial resource for a company of our size. The results of Empire’s recent 2D seismic program have enabled NSAI to evaluate prospects in EP187 which have a best estimate prospective gas resource of over 2.3 Tcf in the Velkerri Shale and 14 million barrels of oil equivalent in the liquids rich Kyalla shale,” Empire managing director Alex Underwood said.

“This represents a near doubling of Empire’s Velkerri shale independent prospective resource estimate and is the first time that the Kyalla shale has been independently assessed as a prospective resource in our properties. The plays evaluated by NSAI in our McArthur basin properties have substantial resource potential.”

Empire added on Monday that it was working with the Northern Territory and the Northern Land Council to resume its work programme activities in the Northern Territory, which had been hampered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
