Empyrean Energy PLC (LON:EME) updated investors on the operations on the Dempsey 1-15 well, in the Sacremento basin in California, where it says drilling is going to plan.

The company said it had been informed by operator Sacgasco Limited (ASX:SGC) that surface casing has been set and cemented to a depth of 552 metres, and the rig is presently being prepared to drill ahead into the 12 ⅟4" hole.

Dempsey 1-15 is an exploration well targeting a prospective resource of more than 1 trillion cubic feet of gas across seven stacked reservoirs – the programme involves three drilling phases with separate casing sizes at 600 metres, 2,000 metres and 3,200 metres.
