Husky Oil Operations Limited White Rose Extension Project

Husky Oil Operations Limited
CEAR No. 12-01-68249

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 WHP 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.

The project was listed on the Inclusion List Regulations under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (S.C. 1992, c. 37)(CEAA) and required a Screening level of assessment. On July 6, 2012, the Minister of the Environment designated the project pursuant to subsections 124(2) and 14(2) of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 (CEAA 2012), so the screening for the project must be continued and completed under the CEAA. C-NLOPB, as the Responsible Authority (RA) respecting the project, must take a course of action under section 20 of the CEAA no later than 365 days after the day on which CEAA 2012 came into force. Pursuant to subsection 124(4) of CEAA 2012, the period taken by a proponent to comply with a request made by an RA to collect information or undertake a study is not included in the calculation of that time limit.

The following is a list of documents available on the C-NLOPB public registry for the project.
