Hurricane books Sedco 712 for Lancaster appraisal drilling

Offshore staff

GODALMING, UKHurricane Energy plans to focus this year on drilling and testing a horizontal appraisal well on its Lancaster basement oil discovery west of Shetland.

The structure is thought to hold 2C contingent resources of 207 MMboe recoverable.

Assuming a successful flow rate, the well will be suspended for future use in the development.

Hurricane has an assignment agreement with Transocean Drilling UK and Talisman Sinopec Energy UK for use of the semisubmersible Sedco 712 for the campaign. The rig is expected to become available this spring.

Lancaster spans blocks 205/21a, 205/22a, and 205/26b on frontier license P1368.
