HOUSTON, May 23
-- Husky Energy Inc. said the forest fires near Slave Lake in northern Alberta have affected about 17,000 boe/d of its production from the area.

Husky noted that the fires are not near any of its facilities, but the fires have shut down the Plains Midstream Rainbow pipeline that transports oil from the area to Edmonton and also have caused power disruptions.

The company has begun transporting from the area 4,500 boe/d to its refining facilities near Lloydminster, Sask., and 2,000 boe/d to processing facilities in Taylor, BC.
