Lincoln Crestal – or the 205/26b-14 well – is the second well in a three-well program on Lincoln and Warwick (the Greater Warwick Area) being drilled in partnership with Spirit Energy following its farm-in to 50% of the Greater Warwick Area in September 2018.

The Lincoln Crestal was spud in mid-July, using the Transocean Leader semi-submersible drilling rig. By the beginning of September, Hurricane was on track to conduct the drill stem test at the well.

Noting speculations regarding the flare on the Transocean Leader drilling rig, Hurricane confirmed in an update on Monday that a drill stem test on the Lincoln Crestal well had produced oil to surface, resulting in a flare.

At 13:10 on Sunday, September 8, 2019, the well was shut-in to enable a planned pressure build-up test.

“The company will update the market on initial results of the well, including flow rates and oil type, following completion of the ongoing testing phase,” Hurricane concluded.
