On September 2nd, Hurricane finalized a 720 m horizontal section of fractured Precambrian basement reservoir.
A week later the company confirms that a drill stem test on the Lincoln Crestal well has produced oil to surface, resulting in a flare. The well was shut-in to enable a planned pressure build-up test.
On September 12th, Hurricane Energy presented the final well results.
- Maximum stable flow rate of 9,800 bopd on ESP
- Lincoln confirmed to contain light, 43° API oil
- No formation water produced
- Well now planned to be suspended as a future producer
The well flowed at an average rate of 4,682 bopd under natural conditions.
Lincoln Crestal is planned to be tied-back to the Aoka Mizu FPSO during 2020, subject to further technical evaluations, regulatory consent and final investment decision by the joint venture.
The Transocean Leader semi-submersible rig will now move to the location for the third well in the 2019 GWA drilling programme, 204/30b-A ‘Warwick West’.
