Husky Energy begins oil production at South White Rose extension
Husky Energy has commenced production from the South White Rose project in the Jeanne d’Arc basin offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
The first well was brought online and the second well is scheduled to start-up in the late summer. Net peak production from the South White Rose extension is expected to ramp up to about 15,000 b/d following the start-up of the second well.
New production from South White Rose and the planned Hibernia-level formation well beneath the North Amethyst field is anticipated to offset the impact of natural declines in the region.
Husky is the operator of South White Rose, holding a 72.5% working interest in the main White Rose field and a 68.9% interest in the satellite fields, which include North Amethyst, South White Rose, and West White Rose.
