The prospective resource estimate was prepared by Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc. ("NSAI"), a worldwide leader of petroleum property analysis to industry, financial organizations and government agencies.
Commenting on the results, Empire Managing Director, Alex Underwood said:
"The prospective resources assessed by NSAI are exciting, with a total best estimate prospective resource of 13.5 TCF. 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. 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. Our exploration activity to date is yielding strong results and we look forward to continuing to enhance the value of our properties through measured exploration investment."
