Hurricane Energy plc, the UK based oil and gas company focused on hydrocarbon resources in naturally fractured basement reservoirs, has provided an update in relation to the 205/26b-14 well – Lincoln Crestal.

Hurricane notes speculation regarding the flare on the Transocean Leader drilling rig. The company confirms that a drill stem test on the Lincoln Crestal well has produced oil to surface, resulting in a flare. At 13:10 on Sunday 8 September 2019, the well was shut-in to enable a planned pressure build-up test.

Hurricane will update the market on initial results of the well, including flow rates and oil type, following completion of the ongoing testing phase.
