Hurricane Energy

Hurricane is a new generation of oil company that exists to discover, appraise and develop oil from fractured basement reservoirs.

We have an experienced team of experts in basement reservoirs. Between us, we have spent decades in the oil industry. Hurricane has discovered more oil in the UK in the past ten years than any other company.

We can do this because we look at things differently to other oil companies. We are innovative, pioneering and creative.
