UK-based oil exploration and production company Hurricane Energy said it has spudded the second of three wells on the Greater Warwick Area in the UK North Sea.

Well 205/26b-B well, or Lincoln Crestal, was was spudded – the start of the drilling process – using the Transocean Leader rig, which recently completed work to plug and abandon the Warwick Deep well.

An update will come once drilling and testing has been completed, said a press note.

Lincoln Crestal is the second in a three-well program designed to further test Hurricane’s assets in the Greater Warwick Area, in which Hurricane has a 50% interest following Spirit Energy’s farm-in to the P1368 South and P2294 licences in September 2018.

Robert Trice, SEO said few days ago that this well is now the “preferred candidate” to tie back to the Aoka Mizu floating production storage and offloading vessel, which is stationed in the Lancaster field.

Hurricane was established to discover, appraise and develop hydrocarbon resources associated with naturally fractured basement reservoirs. The Company's acreage is concentrated on the Rona Ridge, in the West of Shetland region of the UK Continental Shelf.
