White Rose Extension Project

The Minister of the Environment has designated this project and the environmental assessment will continue under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.

Husky Oil Operations Limited, on behalf of its co-venturers, is proposing the White Rose Extension Project (WREP) at the White Rose Field, northeast Grand Banks. A Wellhead Platform (WHP) option will include activities associated with engineering, procurement, construction, fabrication, installation, commissioning, development drilling, operations and maintenance, decommissioning of a concrete gravity structure (CGS), and construction of up to three drill centres. The CGS will involve construction activities at two locations, the White Rose Field and Argentia, Placentia Bay. A subsea drill centre development option will include development of the West White Rose drill centre and construction of up to three additional subsea drill centres. Drilling of the subsea wells will be done from a mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU). Both development options will be tied back to the existing SeaRose floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. Construction activities are scheduled to commence in 2013, with petroleum production to begin in 2016 or 2017.
