Husky Makes Oil Discoveries In South China Sea, Offshore Canada

Husky Energy is having success with the drillbit, recently making two discoveries—one in the Atlantic region offshore Newfoundland, Canada, and another in the South China Sea.

The company said in a news release May 18 that early results from an exploration well drilled on Block 15/33, which is about 160 km (99 miles) southeast of Hong Kong, in the South China Sea demonstrated four oil-bearing zones with a combined thickness of about 70 m (230 ft).

Another discovery was made about 10 km (6 miles) north of the SeaRose FPSO vessel, where Husky said the White Rose A-24 exploration well hit more than 85 m (279 ft) of oil-bearing sandstone.
