Husky Energy’s North Amethyst Extension Approved by Governments

For Immediate Release
April 2, 2008

The C-NLOPB announced today that the Federal and Provincial Governments have approved the Board’s Fundamental Decision to approve Husky Energy’s North Amethyst Development Plan application.

Under the Atlantic Accord Implementation Acts, Fundamental Decisions of the Board must be ratified by both governments before they can be implemented. The approval of both governments now enables Husky Energy to proceed with its sub-sea development which will tie back to the Sea Rose FPSO.

The Board has also approved the Benefits Plan associated with this proposed project.

The North Amethyst Field is estimated to contain 70 million barrels of oil and is one of a series of possible extensions to the White Rose Project.
