CALGARY, CanadaHusky Energy plans to drill two infill wells next year at its fields in the Jeanne d’Arc basin offshore Newfoundland.

The first will likely be at the North Amethyst satellite extension during the first quarter, followed by a second well at the main White Rose field in the summer.

Husky estimates a net peak production rate for each well of around 4,400 b/d.

This year, the company brought forward two other infill wells originally planned for 2018, following drilling and installation efficiencies.

The first, drilled at the main White Rose field at the end of 3Q, is now on production. A second well at North Amethyst is currently drilling, with first oil anticipated in early 2018.
