Flow test success

Hurricane is pleased to announce the successful completion of the testing phase of its key horizontal appraisal well in the Lancaster fractured basement oil discovery West of Shetland. The well will be suspended as a future producer.

The sustained oil flow rate achieved using an electrical submersible pump was 9,800 stock tank barrels of oil per day (STB/d), constrained at that level by the capacity of the surface test equipment. The maximum sustainable natural flow rate was 5,300 STB/d.
