Husky is the operator and majority owner in the White Rose oil field and satellite extensions, which include North Amethyst, West White Rose and the South White Rose Extension. These fields are located on the eastern edge of the Jeanne d'Arc Basin, approximately 350 kilometres southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
White Rose uses a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the SeaRose. Fluids are carried between subsurface reservoirs and the SeaRose through a network of flexible flowlines and risers.
Located approximately six kilometres southwest of the SeaRose FPSO's operational location, North Amethyst was the first near-field tieback off Canada's East Coast. The field was brought onto production in May 2010, less than four years from the time of its discovery.
A total of nine wells are in place at North Amethyst. Production is tied back to the SeaRose FPSO.
First production from West White Rose commenced in September 2011 through a two-well pilot project designed to further evaluate the resource base of this tieback.
Husky continues to asses potential development options, including a fixed wellhead platform and a subsea option.
The South White Rose Extension is being developed in two phases. Gas injection began at the field in Q1 2014. Oil production commenced from the first development well in June 2015 with a second well starting up in Q3 2015.
Husky has a 13 percent working interest in the Terra Nova field, which is located approximately 35 kilometres southwest of White Rose. The field is divided into three areas known as the Graben, East Flank and the Far East.
Production at Terra Nova began in January 2002.
