2014 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 has been suspended as a future producer.

The maximum sustained oil flow rate was 9,800 stock tank barrels of oil per day (STB/d), which was constrained by the capacity of the surface test equipment. The measured well productivity index of 160 STB/d/psi demonstrates a very good quality reservoir pressure and indicates that under production conditions and a moderate 120 psi drawdown, the basement reservoir could deliver 20,000 STB/d from a single well.
