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 vessel.'
The SeaRose has a strong track record for reliability, with uptime of approximately 96 percent in 2014.
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.
