Investment summary

Hurricane Energy is a UK-based E&P focused on hydrocarbon resources in naturally fractured basement reservoirs. Hurricane's recent CPR highlighted 2P reserves + 2C gross resources of 2.6bn boe across all assets. Management’s concept selection and contracting strategy appears to be delivering the desired result and it has reiterated that the Lancaster Early Production System (EPS) remains on time and on budget. The mooring system, including the buoy for the FPSO and the SURF have been installed. The FPSO is on its way to Rotterdam for completion of a final scope of work before proceeding to the Lancaster field. First-oil remains scheduled for H119. We have updated our valuation to reflect the terms of the Spirit Energy farm-in to the Greater Warwick Area, driving our RENAV to 102.8p/share (from 81.0p/share).
