Husky Energy has started production from the South White Rose project in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
“South White Rose is Husky’s second major subsea satellite tieback following the successful North Amethyst subsea project,” said CEO Asim Ghosh. “Both of these projects extend the life of the main White Rose field and use the SeaRose FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) vessel.”
The first well has been brought online and the second well is scheduled to start up in late summer. Net peak production from the South White Rose extension is expected to ramp up to about 15,000 barrels per day (bbls/day) following the startup of the second well, the company said.
Husky is the operator of South White Rose, holding a 72.5 percent working interest in the main White Rose field and a 68.9 percent interest in the satellite fields, which include North Amethyst, South White Rose and West White Rose.
