Hello Albi ! & Ash,
With the experience Hurricane have drilling wells such as the Warwick Deep and the knowledge they have of the reservoirs , I can’t see the well being a duster. However, there’s a lot that can go wrong with such ground breaking wells.
Even if Hurricane and Spirit have made a dog’s breakfast of the drill, ( apologies to dogs) they’ll just have to do it again from a different perspective.
What appears to be over looked is that Hurricane have a free carry on the three well progranmme on the GWA. I’m not familiar with the small print in the deal between Hurricane and Spirit, but whatever happens on this drill the oil ain’t going nowhere, it will still be there for the next drill.
Don’t forget, we’ve had first oil from Lancaster and 100% of the revenue is starting to flow into Hurricane’s coffers, so the company has no money worries.
I always find lots of posters on the boards get impatient, which is understandable, and start to fear the worst when drills take a long time but I prefer to wait for the RNS which will let us know the outcome of the drill, whether it’s good, bad or indifferent.
Best wishes from a very hot and sunny Cumbria. What’s gone wrong with the weather??
