Drilling Activity Summary


Hurricane Energy announced an oil discovery at exploration well #205/26b-14 Lincoln Crestal in the Greater Warwick Area of the U.K. sector of North Sea Block 205/26b. The well was tested flowing 9.8 Mbbl of oil per day with the use of electrical submersible pumps. According to the London-based company, the average rate was 4.682 Mbbl of 43-degree-gravity oil per day. No formation water was produced. The Lincoln Crestal is the second well in a three-well program in the Greater Warwick Area. It was drilled to 1,780 m and included a 720-m horizontal section of fractured basement reservoir. The well will be suspended, and the rig will move to drill the third well in the 2019 drilling program, #204/30b-A Warwick West. Hurricane is the operator with 50% interest in the Greater Warwick Area following Spirit Energy’s farm-in into the P1368 and P2294 licenses in September 2018 for the remaining 50%.
