Analysts at Canaccord Genuity upgraded exploration and production firm Hurricane Energy from ‘hold’ to ‘speculative buy’ on Friday, stating the company had “weathered significant storms” that had nearly left it shipwrecked. Canaccord Genuity said Hurricane’s fortunes appeared to have changed, with winds “gentle” and the waves “calm”, while all the elements also appeared to be “responding kindly” to the company’s wishes. It is clear how this transition has come about; good operational management, continued better-than-expected P6 well productivity, very high levels of operational performance from the Aoka Mizu FPSO, and much-improved oil prices,” said Canaccord. It really needed convergence of all these to put Hurricane in its current position, where the company has rapidly pivoted from a potential existential threat to a much brighter future with growth options.
