Montreal based SNC Lavalin, Toronto based Dragados Canada (a subsidiary of Spanish firm Actividades de Construccion y Sevicios, SA) and St John's Newfoundland based Pennecon are the joint venture partners who will build a concrete gravity structure (CGS) for a fixed drilling platform.
The former two companies will hold 40% each of the partnership, with Pennecon having 20%.
Calgary based Husky is the majority (72.5%) partner in the White Rose field, discovered in 1984 about 350km offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
West White Rose is expected to cost $3.2bn.
The CGS will be built at a yard in Argentia, southwest Newfoundland, and is expected to be complete by 2021 with first production likely in 2022.
Husky also awarded the contract for building the project's living quarters to Kiewit Offshore Services, an Ingleside, Texas based company with a division in Marystown, Newfoundland, where the work will be done. The main topsides will be made in Texas.
