Hurricane Energy plc, the UK based oil and gas company focused on hydrocarbon resources in naturally fractured basement reservoirs, is pleased to provide an operational update in relation to the Early Production System development of the Lancaster field.
The Aoka Mizu FPSO arrived at the Lancaster field on 17 March 2019 and successfully hooked-up to the turret mooring system buoy on the morning of 19 March 2019. The vessel is now on station and securely moored.
Work to achieve first oil continues, following which a further announcement will be made. After first oil, Hurricane anticipates a gradual ramp up of production towards its planned average plateau rate of 17,000 bopd, net of operating efficiency.
