After oil spill, Husky Energy to restart operation on remaining 2 drill centers

Husky Energy Inc. plans to resume operations on its North Amethyst and South White Rose Extension drill centers after a November 2018 offshore oil spill, the company said Aug. 16.

After what the company called an "extensive investigation," along with repairs and system integrity testing in light of the oil spill offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Husky got the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board's approval to restart operations.

Husky Energy found that a failed flowline connector near the South White Rose Extension drill center to be the cause of last year's oil spill, according to the news release.

"As a result of our investigation, we've enhanced our startup procedures, strengthened equipment and added more barriers to prevent failures. The lessons learned have also been shared broadly through the industry to try to prevent similar incidents in the future," Husky Energy CEO and director Robert Peabody said in a statement.

Restarting the remaining two drill centers follows the secure resumption of production from three other White Rose drill centers during the first half of the year.

Husky Energy, a Calgary, Alberta-based energy company, expects White Rose to produce approximately 20,000 barrels per day upon resumption.
