Drill stem test on Hurricane’s UK well produces oil
A drill stem test on the Hurricane Energy-operated Lincoln Crestal well, which is located in the Greater Warwick Area offshore the UK, has produced oil to surface, resulting in a flare.
Lincoln Crestal – or the 205/26b-14 well – is the second well in a three-well program on Lincoln and Warwick (the Greater Warwick Area) being drilled in partnership with Spirit Energy following its farm-in to 50% of the Greater Warwick Area in September 2018.
Noting speculations regarding the flare on the Transocean Leader drilling rig, Hurricane confirmed in an update on Monday that a drill stem test on the Lincoln Crestal well had produced oil to surface, resulting in a flare.
At 13:10 on Sunday, September 8, 2019, the well was shut-in to enable a planned pressure build-up test.
“The company will update the market on initial results of the well, including flow rates and oil type, following completion of the ongoing testing phase,” Hurricane concluded.
