Husky Energy Inc. has started oil production from a second well at the South White Rose extension offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.

The two wells are expected to produce a combined net peak production of 15,000 b/d (OGJ Online, June 29, 2015).

“This satellite extension aligns with our long-term strategy to extend the life of the main White Rose field through staged step-outs,” said Asim Ghosh, Husky chief executive officer.

Production from the South White Rose extension drill center is tied back to the SeaRose floating production, storage, and offloading vessel.

Operator Husky holds 72.5% interest in the main White Rose field and 68.875% interest in satellite fields North Amethyst, South White Rose, and West White Rose.

Husky said the West White Rose extension, subject to review and final approvals, is expected to begin production no earlier than 2020 (OGJ Online, July 28, 2015).
