Commenting on Spirit Energy’s decision to farm-in to 50% of Hurricane Energy’s Greater Warwick Area (GWA) licenses, Mike Tholen, Oil & Gas UK’s upstream policy director, said:

“The west of Shetland, known as the ‘frontier’ region, has the greatest potential to expand current production. By acquiring a significant stake in these assets, Spirit Energy is demonstrating its confidence both in the basin’s growing competitiveness and the opportunities it continues to offer investors.”
