Investment summary

In September 2016, the 205/21a-7 pilot well helped confirm a continuous oil column below Lancaster basement structural closure. Hurricane looked to extend this play along the Rona Ridge through the exploration of Lincoln and Halifax (now completed) with analysis ongoing – both encountered hydrocarbons. Management sees the results as highly significant – the Halifax well proves extension from the original Lancaster discovery and indicates >1km oil column. Management estimates combined gross unrisked prospective resource of up to 1bnbbl, offering potential for a significant increase to the 300mmbl we currently assume for Lancaster. In our updated valuation, we incorporate success at Lincoln and our RENAV recently increased from 75p/share to 101p/share (+35%).

Industry outlook

Fractured basement is seen as an 'unconventional' play in the UK, although basement reservoirs have been producing for decades. Hurricane has successfully de-risked Lancaster through a multi-well appraisal programme.
