GODALMING, UK – Hurricane Energy has confirmed that a drillstem test on the Lincoln Crestal exploration well west of Shetland has produced oil to surface, resulting in a flare.

The company issued its statement in response to speculation that the 205/26b-14 well, drilled by the semisub Transocean Leader, had discovered oil.

Lincoln Crestal is a fractured basement prospect in the Greater Warwick Area.
