Husky Offshore Drilling Rig Damaged By Ship; No Spills, Injuries

change text size

A Husky Energy Inc. oil-drilling rig off the coast of Newfoundland was damaged by a supply ship Thursday afternoon, a company spokeswoman said.

No one was hurt in the incident and no oil was spilled. The rig was finishing a water-injection well at Husky's West White Rose pilot program and the supply ship had docked with the rig to remove equipment before the rig headed to port for maintenance.

Production at White Rose was unaffected. Husky normally produces about 47,000 barrels of light oil a day from the White Rose fields, which are located about 200 miles east of the Newfoundland coastline.

The Husky spokeswoman said there was no damage to the structural integrity of either the drilling rig or the supply ship, owned by A.P. Moller-Maersk. Husky is still investigating the cause of the incident and assessing the cost of the damage.
