Hurricane Energy announced that its Lincoln well (205/26b-A) in the United Kingdom North Sea, west of the Shetland Islands, discovered a “significant” oil column. The company recently completed drilling and logging the well, which resulted in a significant fractured basement discovery. Gas chromatography and drilling data indicated a hydrocarbon column of at least 2,165 ft that lies outside the structural closure on Hurricane’s nearby Greater Lancaster potential development acreage, according to Robert Trice, chief executive officer. Lincoln’s predrill assessment of 250 million recoverable bbl of oil “may be conservative,” he said.
