Hello H t L,
Thanks for the link to Energy Voice. The news item on the arrival of the Aoka Mizu at Rotterdam makes interesting reading.
Also a good read in E V was a further news item on B P’s intention to make a further development of the giant Clare Oil Field, with the Clare South Oil Field. The news item gives an outline for the time frame before first oil in c 2025 and the enormous cost of bringing Clare South into production.
With Lancaster maybe coming on stream later this year or more probably in early 2019 and with production in line with predictions and little or no drop in pressure, I reckon it would be good business sense for B P to make a bid for Hurricane.
B P are committed to W of S and the acquisition of Hurricane would be a perfect fit to their operations. How much B P are prepared to pay for Hurricane but I would hazard a guess that it would be significantly less that the cost of bringing Clair South into production.
I reckon the next few weeks and months are going to be extremely interesting and hopefully very profitable.
Best wishes to you and your family from a very wet and windy Cumbria.
