Canadian oil and gas company Husky Energy has awarded a construction contract for its West White Rose project to a partnership of three companies, according to CBC.

Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin, Toronto-based Dragados Canada (a subsidiary of Spanish firm Actividades de Construccion y Servicios, SA) and St John’s, Newfoundland-based Pennecon are the joint venture partners who will build a concrete gravity structure (CGS) for a fixed drilling platform.

The former two companies will hold 40% each of the partnership, with Pennecon having 20%.

Calgary-based Husky is the majority (72.5%) partner in the White Rose field, discovered in 1984 about 350km offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.

West White Rose is expected to cost $3.2bn.

The CGS will be built at a yard in Argentia, southwest Newfoundland, and is expected to be complete by 2021 with first production likely in 2022.

Husky also awarded the contract for building the project’s living quarters to Kiewit Offshore Services, an Ingleside, Texas-based company with a division in Marystown, Newfoundland, where the work will be done. The main topsides will be made in Texas.
