- Hurricane Energy said it was poised to commence testing work at its Warwick West well off the northern coast of Scotland.

The company said it had noted media speculation about the well, but said it was too early to make conclusions about its success.

'The well is due to commence testing soon,' Hurricane Enregy said, adding the start of operations was weather dependent.

'As such it is far too early to make any conclusions as to the success of the Warwick West well,' the company said.

'An update will be provided once testing commences and on the completion of well testing.'
