“Progress in delivering the UK’s next super-giant oil field”
with Dr Robert Trice - CEO of Hurricane Energy.

Since turning the taps on at Lancaster, in May 2019, Hurricane has produced and sold over 2 million barrels of oil. Against an initial back drop of significant industry scepticism, Hurricane has progressively de-risked Lancaster to the point where the UK’s first basement reservoir field is on target to be producing over 17,000 barrels of oil per day during 2020, from a two well development.

Robert will share examples of some of the technical challenges, commercial solutions and geological insights that have underpinned the progress made with Lancaster to date and reflect on the challenges that need to be met to deliver the UK’s next super giant oil field.
