Director Shareholdings

 

Hurricane Energy plc, the UK based oil and gas company focused on hydrocarbon resources in naturally fractured basement reservoirs, announces the award of shares to Hurricane's executive directors in relation to their 2019 bonus awards.

 

As detailed in the Company's Annual Report and Accounts 2019, Hurricane's Remuneration Committee determined that the 2019 bonus award for Hurricane's executive directors would not be delivered fully in cash and would now instead be delivered as two thirds in cash and one third in shares (all net of tax and other deductions), with the shares to be held in the Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT") for a period of three years unless earlier release is agreed at the sole discretion of the Board.

 

On 27 April 2020, Hurricane received notification from Sanne Fiduciary Services Limited as Trustee of the Hurricane Energy EBT, that it made market purchases of 490,741 ordinary shares of 0.01p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at an average price of 10.62 pence per share to satisfy executive director bonus awards.

About Hurricane

 

Hurricane was established to discover, appraise and develop hydrocarbon resources associated with naturally fractured basement reservoirs. The Company's acreage is concentrated on the Rona Ridge, in the West of Shetland region of the UK Continental Shelf.

The Lancaster field (100% owned by Hurricane) is the UK's first producing basement field. Hurricane is pursuing a phased development of Lancaster, starting with an Early Production System consisting of two wells tied-back to the Aoka Mizu FPSO. Hydrocarbons were introduced to the FPSO system on 11 May 2019 and the first oil milestone was achieved on 4 June 2019.

In September 2018, Spirit Energy farmed-in to 50% of the Lincoln and Warwick assets, committing to a phased work programme targeting sanction of an initial stage of full field development.
