CALGARY, Canada – The SeaRose FPSO has been reconnected at the White Rose field offshore Newfoundland following a planned off-station program at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Northern Ireland. Operator Husky Energy expects production to resume this quarter.

An infill production well has been drilled at White Rose and will be brought online once production restarts.

Development drilling continues at North Amethyst, and a supporting water injection well has been completed for Husky’s West White Rose pilot project.

In May, the company filed a project description with regulators for the White Rose Extension Project. It expects to make a decision on a preferred development option later this year. The project would develop existing infrastructure at the White Rose field and would use the FPSO for processing and storage.

Later this year, Husky plans to participate in two exploration wells offshore Newfoundland. One will target the Searcher prospect in the southern Jeanne d’Arc basin. The other will be on the Harpoon structure, southeast of the Mizzen discovery in the Flemish Pass basin.
