Husky Energy Awards $250 M Contract For White Rose

Husky Energy Inc. has awarded a $250 million contract for the subsea production system for the White Rose oil field project, located 217 miles off the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. The contract covers the design, supply and installation of the subsea system for the White Rose project.
