Husky starts oil production from South White Rose extension
Husky Energy Inc., Calgary, reported start of oil production from the South White Rose extension project in the Jeanne d’Arc basin offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
Husky, with 68.9% interest in South White Rose, said net peak production from the subsea satellite tieback is expected to reach 15,000 b/d following startup of a second well in late summer. The project uses the SeaRose floating production, storage, and offloading vessel at White Rose field (OGJ Online, Apr. 12, 2004).
At another White Rose satellite, Husky said a “Hibernia-level formation well” in North Amethyst field is expected to begin producing in this year’s fourth quarter, with forecast net peak production of 5,000 b/d.
Production from South White Rose and North Amethyst is anticipated to offset the impact of natural declines in the region, Husky said.
