Hurricane responded to media speculation regarding the Warwick West well on Friday by stating that the well was due to ‘begin testing soon’ depending on the weather situation.

The company added that it was far too early to make any conclusions as to the success of the Warwick well.

To remind, the well was spudded on September 24, 2019, using the Transocean Leader semi-submersible rig.

Warwick West is the third and final well of the 2019 Greater Warwick Area drilling program on Hurricane’s Lincoln and Warwick assets.

Warwick Deep was the first in the three-well program on Hurricane’s Lincoln and Warwick assets. It was spud in mid-April and completed at the beginning of July with disappointing results.

The Lincoln Crestal well, the second well in the three-well program, was spudded in mid-July. In early September, a drill stem test produced oil to the surface, resulting in a flare. The results of testing of the Lincoln Crestal well confirmed the presence of light oil, which can be produced at commercial rates. The well will be tied-back to the Aoka Mizu FPSO in 2020.

GWA partners Spirit Energy and Hurricane committed to a work program, which envisaged first oil by 2020 and the FID on the first phase of a full field development by 2021. Spirit Energy will take on the role of GWA license operator, following successful drilling during 2019 and 2020.
