Hurricane Wins 'Out of Round' Licence Adjacent to its Lancaster Licence

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/18/2016, Location: Europe

Hurricane has been awarded the P2308 licence (Halifax) by the Oil and Gas Authority in an out of round application. The licence is contiguous to, and extends north east from, Hurricane's existing Lancaster licence.

The recently drilled Lancaster Pilot well (205/21a-7) encountered a minimum oil down to (ODT) of 1,620m TVDSS, indicating that the Lancaster oil accumulation is likely to extend beyond the Lancaster licence boundary. The Company believes that if mobile oil can be demonstrated outside of local structural closure at Halifax, then the Lancaster Field could extend further north east along the Rona Ridge.

A previous well (205/23-2) drilled on the Halifax structure encountered oil and gas shows in sandstones immediately above the basement. In addition, Hurricane's analysis of basement cuttings from the 205/23-2 well indicates the presence of oil thus mitigating the oil charge risk to Halifax. Seismic interpretation indicates the presence of a well-defined fault network within the fractured basement of the Halifax Prospect, analogous to that seen in Lancaster.

Recognising this, Hurricane has identified a well location on Halifax (the "Halifax Well") and acquired a site survey over the prospective well location in preparation for the drilling of an exploration well. On the basis that permits can be obtained in time, Hurricane intends to drill the Halifax Well immediately following the Lincoln Well. Hurricane has extended the date of its second well option with Transocean until 25 November.

Halifax, in common with Hurricane's other licences, is 100% owned and is an Innovate Licence. The work programme is broadly limited to the drilling of a well which would be satisfied by the drilling of the Halifax prospect.

Dr Robert Trice, Chief Executive of Hurricane, said:

"The Halifax prospect is an extremely exciting opportunity for the Company and a logical target after this year's drilling success at Lancaster. Our exploration objective is to demonstrate that Halifax is analogous to Lancaster in that the reservoir is highly fractured and that a significant hydrocarbon column is present outside of structural closure. If we are successful in this aim, then we believe it will be a significant step in establishing the true extent of the Greater Lancaster Area. This would not only be tremendous news for the Company but also for the UK's oil and gas Industry."
