Premier Andrew Furey is optimistic about the future of the West White Rose project following a meeting with the CEO of Cenovus.
Furey and Energy Minister Andrew Parsons had their first chat with Alex Pourbaix on Friday, less than a week after Cenovus swallowed up Husky Energy in a multi-billion-dollar merger.
Furey told reporters yesterday that the meeting went as well as can be expected. He says Pourbaix said he was “a big fan” of Newfoundland and Labrador, adding he was hopeful for the future of the West White Rose project.
Parsons said he also met with Husky officials on Saturday as they continue to discuss how best to prepare West White Rose for restart in 2022.
