Husky Energy land acquisition offshore Greenland
Posted: 19 June 2007
Mr. John C.S. Lau, President & Chief Executive Officer of Husky Energy reported today that Husky has been awarded exploration licenses on Block 5 (2007-22) and Block 7 (2007-24) from the West Disko 2006 Licencing Round, offshore Greenland.
“Our experience operating in the North Atlantic offshore Newfoundland and Labrador has positioned us for the challenges in exploring this new frontier area,” said Mr. Lau.
“Husky is excited with this offshore Greenland opportunity and will commence an aero-gravity and magnetic survey over the blocks this summer.”
These two blocks which cover an area of 21,067 square kilometers, are located approximately 120 kilometres offshore the west coast of Disko Island in water depths of less than 500 metres.
Husky has an 87.5 per cent interest in the licenses and will act as operator. NUNAOIL A/S, Greenland's National Oil Company, holds the remaining 12.5 per cent interest.
