Hurricane Energy plc, the UK based oil and gas company focused on hydrocarbon resources in naturally fractured basement reservoirs, is pleased to provide an operational update in relation to the Early Production System on the Lancaster Field (Lancaster EPS).

The offshore installation phase of the Lancaster EPS development has commenced. The first operation to be carried out was the installation of the Enhanced Horizontal Xmas Trees on the two existing wells. The 'Far Superior' offshore construction vessel successfully landed and secured both Xmas Trees and is now scheduled to demobilise.

Additional logistical work is also taking place at the field ahead of the installation of the turret mooring system for the FPSO.

Dr Robert Trice, Chief Executive, commented:

"I'm delighted to see the start of the installation phase of the project with activity beginning to take place offshore. All workstreams are proceeding well; we remain on budget and on schedule for first oil in H1 2019."
