Hurricane Energy PLC’s Warwick Deep well in the West of Shetlands area offshore the UK flowed oil, gas, and water at noncommercial rates during a drillstem test and is being abandoned (OGJ Online, Apr. 19, 2019).

After plugging the 205/26b-13Z well, the Transocean Leader semisubmersible will drill the 205/26b-B Lincoln Crestal well, the second of three wells Hurricane plans in the Greater Warwick Area.

The Warwick Deep well was drilled to 1,964 m total vertical distance subsea with a 712-m horizontal section in fractured basement reservoir.

“Initial analysis indicates that the well intersected a poorly connected section of the fracture network within the oil column,” Hurricane said in a press release.
