Flowline recovery has stopped today from the South White Sea Rose extension, where 250,000 litres of oil leaked into the ocean in November of 2018.
Husky Energy says one half of the connector has been removed and plugged. Once the connector is recovered, it will be sent for forensic analysis.
An additional 47.5 litres of oil was released from the flowline during the process yesterday.
Husky says the oil was managed and that no seabirds were affected. Operations will continue tomorrow once aerial surveillance conditions improve.
