Empire Oil and Gas advises that the drilling rig contracted to drill its Red Gully North well is in the process of being mobilised to the well site, which is located four kilometres north of Empire’s Red Gully Production facility.

The drilling rig, Enerdrill Rig 3, was released on Monday 9 November where it has been drilling for another Perth Basin operator approximately 130km north of the Red Gully North location. Mobilisation to Red Gully North and rig-up is expected to take approximately 8 days.

Empire Oil and Gas Chief Executive Officer Ken Aitken said the Company had received all necessary regulatory approvals and would proceed to spud the well as soon as rig-up was complete.

“The discovery of gas in the Gingin-1 well drilled in 1965 only 500m to the northeast gives us a high degree of confidence in this well,” Mr Aitken said. “The Gingin-1 well was a producing well and Red Gully North is located on the same structure but updip of that discovery.”

Empire will provide another announcement on spudding of the well and will lodge weekly drilling updates.
