Hurricane’s strategy is to create shareholder value through monetising the reserves and resources associated with naturally fractured basement reservoirs within its portfolio . 


Narrow range of reserves and resources using knowledge of UKCS basement reservoirs.


Hurricane was the first company to target fractured basement in the UK and has made a number of discoveries. 
Strategy Convert resources to reserves to maximise value ascribed by the market and industry.
Approach Hurricane’s discoveries have been assigned contingent resources by third-party reserve consultant, ERC Equipoise. Contingent resources describe the potential recoverable volume of a discovery, being converted to reserves with an associated development plan. 
Strategy Generate data needed to plan future development phases whilst producing cash flow to maintain portfolio progress.  
Approach Full field development stages require production data for efficient planning. Early production systems deliver this whilst generating cash flow to fund future stages and broader work.
