ESP assistance boosts flow from Lancaster side track

Offshore staff

GODALMING, UKHurricane Energy says a horizontal side track well on its fractured basement Lancaster oil field west of Shetland has delivered a sustained flow rate of 14,500 b/d, with no formation water, helped by an electrical submersible pump.

The flow rate was constrained by the available test equipment.

The company plans to suspend the well for use as a future producer, ahead of the early production system phase of development.

CEO Dr. Robert Trice said: “We are highly encouraged by this flow rate which reinforces our reservoir model and further demonstrates the production potential of the Lancaster field.”
