Husky Energy Inc. reported its fourth-quarter profit fell compared with a year ago as it was hit by lower synthetic crude oil prices and other factors.
The company says it earned $216 million or 21 cents per share for the quarter ended Dec. 31.
That compared with a profit of $672 million or 66 cents per share in the same quarter a year earlier.
Production averaged 304,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, down from 320,000 boe per day a year earlier.
The drop came as the company suspended production at its SeaRose production where it suffered an oil spill in November at the White Rose oilfield, about 350 kilometres off the coast of St. John’s, N.L.
SeaRose returned to operations at the end of January and is expected to continue to ramp up through the second quarter.
