Husky Energy has awarded Wood Group a multi-million dollar contract to complete detailed engineering for the topsides of White Rose, a concrete gravity-based structure wellhead platform planned for offshore eastern Canada. The project includes procurement services and engineering design work.
The Wood Group team has identified several project innovations to significantly reduce engineering person-hours and realise other savings at White Rose.
Robin Watson, chief executive of Wood Group, said, “We are combining our global expertise and capabilities from St. John’s, Canada; Houston; Sandefjord, Norway; and Bogotá, Colombia to complete White Rose in the next 12 months with a clear focus on adding value and delivering cost savings and efficient project delivery.”

Expected gross peak production rate of about 75,000 bbls/day, (52,500 bbls/day Husky working interest). The net project cost of $2.2 billion to first oil ($3.6 billion over project life), including about $180 million reflected in 2017 capital guidance. (Total cost of $5.2 billion over the project life.) Concrete gravity structure supported wellhead platform to include drilling facilities, utilities, support services, and accommodations for personnel. Significant direct employment, business and other industrial benefits provided to Newfoundland and Labrador, including more than $3 billion in provincial royalties, equity and taxes and more than 10 million person-hours of employment during the engineering and construction phases. The project is expected to create approximately 250 permanent platform jobs once operational.
A purpose-built graving dock at Argentia, Newfoundland and Labrador was completed in 2015 to enable construction of the concrete gravity structure. Construction will commence in the fourth quarter of 2017. Following construction, the concrete gravity structure will be towed to the White Rose field where the platform’s topsides will be installed before connecting to the SeaRose via existing subsea infrastructure.
