KEY AREA SUMMARY
THE FOUNDATION BUSINESS
-- Heavy Oil
Production from Husky's heavy oil thermal projects was approximately 41,000 bbls/day during the first quarter.
The 3,500 bbls/day Sandall thermal development was brought online in early 2014. Production from seven wells is now averaging 4,500 bbls/day, reflecting the latest in a series of thermal projects that have produced higher than nameplate capacity in their early stages.
A 3,500 bbls/day thermal project has been sanctioned at Edam West, which is scheduled to be brought on production in 2016.
Work continues on advancing the 10,000 bbls/day Rush Lake thermal project towards first oil in the second half of 2015.
Module construction and site clearing has commenced for two new 10,000 bbls/day thermal developments at Edam East and Vawn, with first oil planned for 2016.
Twenty-three horizontal wells were drilled in the first quarter out of a planned 140-well program in 2014, while 73 Cold Heavy Oil Production with Sand (CHOPS) wells were drilled out of a planned 177-well program.
-- Western Canada
Production from the Company's Western Canada resource plays exceeded 30,000 boe/day during the first quarter.
Gas Resource Plays
A multi-rig drilling program at the Ansell liquids-rich gas resource play is delivering strong results, with average volumes of 17,000 boe/day from the multi-zone play. Eight horizontal wells were drilled and three horizontal wells were completed in the first quarter.
The four-well pad at Kaybob in the Duvernay play continues to produce as expected, and a new two-well pad came online in the first quarter.
Drilling has commenced in the Strachan Cardium play, with four liquids-rich horizontal gas wells drilled and four wells completed during the first quarter. Further development drilling is planned later in the year.
Oil Resource Plays
A total of 18 horizontal wells were drilled and 22 wells completed over the first quarter, with drilling activities primarily focused on the Viking, Oungre Bakken and North Cardium oil resource plays.
A four-well pad was placed on production at Wapiti Cardium, with results as expected.
The Company completed an expansion of its pipeline system from the Sandall heavy oil thermal development to the existing gathering system that leads to Hardisty, Alberta. Construction is underway on two 300,000-barrel tanks and additional piping interconnections at Hardisty to further expand storage capability starting in 2015.
Front-end engineering design for the crude flexibility project at the Lima Refinery is approximately 90 percent complete. The project includes equipment upgrades to allow for the processing of up to 40,000 barrels per day (bbls/day) of heavy crude feedstock starting in 2017, which will support the Company's growing heavy oil thermal business in Western Canada.
Work was advanced on a new recycle gas compressor at the partner-operated refinery in Toledo, Ohio, which is expected to improve operational integrity and plant performance when it comes online later in 2014.
Downstream throughputs were 289,000 barrels per day (bbls/day), compared to 327,000 bbls/day in the first quarter of 2013, which takes into account a planned turnaround at the Lima Refinery in the first quarter of 2014.
-- Asia Pacific Region
The first of three fields to be developed at the Liwan Gas Project achieved first gas on March 30. The Liwan 3-1 field and facilities are operating as expected. Gas sales began towards the end of April, with volumes already ramped up to about 175 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/day), plus approximately 7,000 boe/day of liquids (gross).
Short-term customer offtake delays, due to reduced demand from three new gas-fired power plants that are undergoing commissioning/operations startup, will result in some production volumes being deferred.
In Indonesia, the Company signed a Heads of Agreement for sales gas from the MDA and MBH fields in the Madura Strait. Construction continued on the shallow water platform infrastructure for the BD field, with a contract award for an FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) vessel awaiting approval from the regulator.
Husky has signed a Production Sharing Contract on the Anugerah block in the East Java Basin offshore Indonesia and is planning to commence initial exploration activity later in 2014.
-- Oil Sands
The Sunrise Energy Project is approximately 87 percent complete and advancing as planned towards startup in the second half of 2014.
Twelve stratigraphic wells were drilled and an additional 38 square kilometres of 3-D seismic work was acquired in the first quarter to support additional development. Subject to approvals, the second phase of the Central Plant Facility will be developed in two 70,000 bbls/day stages (each with two 35,000 bbls/day plants), bringing total capacity to 200,000 bbls/day (100,000 bbls/day net to Husky.)
-- Atlantic Region
Husky is further extending the utilization of the SeaRose FPSO through near-field satellite developments in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin offshore Newfoundland and Labrador.
Drilling is set to resume on a Hibernia-formation well that will target a deeper zone beneath the main North Amethyst field, with first production planned later in 2014.
Gas injection commenced in the first quarter at the South White Rose extension in the White Rose field, with production equipment scheduled for installation in the third quarter and first oil anticipated around the end of the year.
Construction is continuing on a graving dock to support construction of a fixed wellhead platform at West White Rose. Subject to final approvals, first production is scheduled for the 2017 timeframe.
The Company and its partner have secured the West Hercules drilling rig to begin an exploration and appraisal program in the deepwater Flemish Pass Basin beginning the fall of 2014. A seismic program is set to commence in the second quarter of 2014 in the area of the Bay du Nord discovery. Husky holds a 35 percent working interest in the Bay du Nord, Harpoon and Mizzen discoveries in the Flemish Pass.

Information used in developing forward-looking statements has been acquired from various sources including third-party consultants, suppliers, regulators and other sources.
Because actual results or outcomes could differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements, investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. By their nature, forward-looking statements involve numerous assumptions, inherent risks and uncertainties, both general and specific, which contribute to the possibility that the predicted outcomes will not occur. Some of these risks, uncertainties and other factors are similar to those faced by other oil and gas companies and some are unique to Husky.
The Company's Annual Information Form for the year ended December 31, 2013 and other documents filed with securities regulatory authorities (accessible through the SEDAR website www.sedar.com and the EDGAR website www.sec.gov) describe the risks, material assumptions and other factors that could influence actual results and are incorporated herein by reference.
Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and, except as required by applicable securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all of such factors and to assess in advance the impact of each such factor on the Company's business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. The impact of any one factor on a particular forward-looking statement is not determinable with certainty as such factors are dependent upon other factors, and the Company's course of action would depend upon its assessment of the future considering all information then available.
Disclosure of Oil and Gas Information
The Company uses the terms barrels of oil equivalent ("boe"), which is calculated on an energy equivalence basis whereby one barrel of crude oil is equivalent to six thousand cubic feet of natural gas. Readers are cautioned that the term boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. This measure is primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent value equivalence at the wellhead.
