The Proposed Project

Husky Oil Operations Ltd. (Husky) is proposing to conduct an exploration drilling project within offshore exploration licenses located in both the Jeanne d'Arc Basin and the Flemish Pass Basin, approximately 350 kilometres east of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. As proposed, the Husky Energy Exploration Drilling Project would include the drilling of up to 10 wells within a nine-year period, starting in 2018. The project would allow Husky to determine the presence, nature and quantities of the potential hydrocarbon resource.
