Husky Energy going ahead with West White Rose offshore Newfoundland

Canadian oil and gas company Husky Energy on Monday announced it had approved proceeding with its West White Rose Project offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, according to CBC.

It will use a fixed wellhead platform tied back to the SeaRose floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

Calgary, Alberta-based Husky has a majority 70% stake in the project and is partnered with Suncor Energy and Nalcor Energy of St John’s, Newfoundland.

Production should begin in 2022 and is expected to reach a peak daily rate of 75,000 barrels by 2025. Estimated lifespan of the project is 25 years.

During the announcement Husky also revealed a new discovery made about 11 km from the FPSO. But it is too early to say how significant that find is, a company spokesman said.
