The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board approved Husky Energy’s plan to resume production from the North Amethyst and South White Rose Extension drill centres at the White Rose field. These two drill centres have been offline since a November 2018 oil spill. Three other drill centres returned to operation earlier this year. The C-NLOPB has determined that Husky has done appropriate work in the areas of people, processes and equipment in response to the November 2018 spill.

Husky submitted its case for safe resumption of production to the C-NLOPB, supported by the third party Certifying Authority, DNV GL.

Husky has implemented several process safety initiatives and has additional oversight around critical activities in the re-start of production. Key mitigations implemented by Husky as part of their case towards resumption of full production operations include installation of a replacement flowline connector with higher load capacity, installation of strengthening clamps on similar connectors in other production flowlines and third party flow assurance work to help mitigate against future hydrate development.
