CALGARY, Canada – Husky Energy’s (HSE:Toronto) North Amethyst satellite development offshore Newfoundland is producing 37,000 boe/d, in line with design targets.
The West White Rose pilot is also contributing incremental volumes.
Husky has filed an application to amend the development plan for North Amethyst to include the deeper Hibernia formation.
Development drilling will continue at North Amethyst this year in the Ben Nevis reservoir, and an infill well will be drilled at the main White Rose field to facilitate incremental oil recovery.
The company continues to evaluate use of a wellhead and drilling platform for future development in the White Rose region, and expects to award contracts to support pre-front-end engineering design (FEED) and FEED during the first half this year.
Preparations continue to take the SeaRose FPSO off-station this spring for around 125 days.
A 21-week dockside maintenance program is also scheduled for the Petro-Canada operated Terra Nova FPSO in the second half of 2012.
