West White Rose Project, Argentia
Together with its co-venture partners, Husky Energy is developing West White Rose with a concrete gravity (CGS) supported wellhead platform. The platform is a fixed drilling rig, which will produce back to the SeaRose FPSO. The project is currently under construction at the Argentia Industrial Park, Placentia.
West White Rose is expected to produce first oil in 2022 and is operated by Husky Energy.
Lower Churchill Project
The Lower Churchill River Project is one of the most attractive hydroelectric resources in North America. The project’s two sites, Muskrat Falls and Gull Island, have a combined capacity of over 3,000 megawatts.
Phase One, the Muskrat Falls Project, includes construction of a 824 megawatt hydroelectric generating facility, over 1,600 km of transmission lines across the province, and the Maritime Link between Newfoundland and Nova Scotia.
Hebron Project, Bull Arm
The Hebron Gravity Based Structure was primarily constructed at the Bull Arm Site, Trinity Bay. The structure is 278 meters high, has a 130 metre diameter through the base, weighs 750,000 tonnes and has a living quarters for 220 people. The project is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources. The platform took 40 million work hours to build, and it is expected to produce 150,000 barrels of oil per day at peak construction.
Hebron was discovered in 1980, produced first oil in 2017 and is operated by ExxonMobile.
Newfoundland Transshipment Limited, Whiffen Head
Newfoundland Transshipment Limited (NTL) was formed in 1996 to oversee the construction and operation of a major marine transshipment facility located in Whiffen Head, Placentia Bay.
Construction of the Terminal was completed in the fall of 1998 and the operation has been ongoing since that time. The NTL facility was specifically designed to handle crude oil production from the oil fields located offshore NL. The Terminal received its first production from the Hibernia field in October 1998.
