Husky Oil Operations Ltd. has let two contracts to Technip for work related to the South White Rose Extension (SWRX) tieback to White Rose oil field offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
The project will develop the Early Cretaceous Ben Nevis/Avalon formation of the South Avalon and SWRX satellite pools. Wells completed subsea will be tied back to the SeaRose floating production, storage, and offloading vessel on the main field, which lies in 120 m of water 350 km southeast of St. John’s.
Husky, operator, plans to drill two horizontal production wells, one deviated gas injector, and one water injector to develop the SWRX pool, in which it holds a 68.875% working interest with partners Suncor Energy, 26.125%, and Nalcor Energy-Oil & Gas, 5%.
To develop the South Avalon pool, it plans one horizontal infill producer and one highly deviated gas injector. Interests in that pool are Husky 72.5% and Suncor 27.5%.
With an assumed end of field life at 2030, Husky estimates cumulative oil recoveries from the SWRX drill center of 24 million bbl from the SWRX pool and 9 million bbl from the South Avalon pool.
Technip’s contracts cover the supply and installation of gas-injection flowlines, umbilicals, and subsea structures.
