White Rose field
Facing a minimum 1-year delay to startup, Husky Energy discussed the West White Rose extension project’s challenges and risks with Canadian local and federal governments. Cancellation is a possibility, according to a Husky executive.
Production from the Hibernia platform was shut down again on 17 August after its second oil spill in a month, while Husky Energy began to ramp up output from the White Rose field following the largest-ever spill off Canada’s easternmost province.
A shut-in subsea flowline is believed to be the source of the spill on Husky Energy’s SeaRose FPSO offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. The spill is believed to be the largest in the history of the Canadian province.
