CALGARY — About 370 jobs have been cut at Husky Energy Inc. this year with most of the reductions coming in a major round of layoffs in October, CEO Rob Peabody revealed on a conference call Monday to discuss the company's guidance for 2020 and 2021.

The Calgary-based company had refused previously to say how many workers were affected by job cuts designed to better align its workforce with lower capital spending plans going forward.

"What we're seeing is that (the reductions) will generate forward savings of about $70 million ... per year," said Peabody, adding the company will take a charge against earnings of $70 million in the fourth quarter to account for the cuts.

'This is effectively adding another major pipeline': How more oil will be exported from Alberta

  'This is effectively adding another major pipeline': How more oil will be exported from Alberta Export pipelines out of Western Canada are running at full capacity and now, operators are finding ways to squeeze more oil through those pipes. The additional pipeline space is desperately needed by oil companies as export constraints have contributed to lower prices and are the main reason the Alberta government continues to restrict how much oil can be produced in the province.As new pipeline projects such TC Energy's Keystone XL, Enbridge's Line 3, and the federal government's Trans Mountain Expansion face delays, the expanded capacity could provide significant relief for the industry.

In a regulatory filing earlier this year, Husky said it had 5,157 permanent employees at the end of 2018, little changed from the numbers at the end of 2016 and 2017.

Capital spending for 2020 and 2021 is being cut by $500 million compared with guidance released last spring due to what Husky called changing market conditions.

The budget for 2020 is to fall by about $100 million to between $3.2 billion and $3.4 billion, while the following year it will drop by an additional $400 million.

Huskey Energy CEO Rob Peabody revealed on a conference call Monday that his firm will be cutting 370 jobs this year as it looks to reduce spending . While these cuts will provide roughly million in savings, overall spending for 2020 and 2021 will be cut $ 500 million due to worsening market

The savings next year will mainly come from lower spending on cold flow heavy oil projects in Western Canada but production will increase by about four per cent thanks to the startup of two thermal heavy oil projects near Lloydminster, Sask., that use steam to aid flow from wells.

Average upstream production is expected to be in the range of 295,000 to 310,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day for 2020.

That includes about 5,000 barrels of oil per day in the first half of the year expected to be interrupted by the Alberta government's oil curtailment program and planned maintenance activities, Husky said.

Capital spending for 2020 will focus on the thermal projects, its Liuhua 29-1 offshore natural gas project in China and construction of the West White Rose Project in the Atlantic region, Husky said.

Production is expected to rise about about 10 per cent in 2021 as new projects come on stream.

Despite U.S. calls for more, Canada's defence spending set to stay the same

  Despite U.S. calls for more, Canada's defence spending set to stay the same OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is likely to face questions from other leaders of the NATO military alliance next week as new figures show Canadian military spending is expected to remain stagnant this year. All NATO members agreed in 2014 to work toward spending two per cent of their gross domestic products on defence within a decade, a pledge that has taken on added significance thanks to U.S. President Donald Trump.

Husky said it expects to spend about $500 million next year related to the ongoing rebuild of its Superior Refinery in Wisconsin, which was partly destroyed by a fire in April 2018.

On the call, Peabody said about US$150 million of the estimated total US$750 million cost of the Superior rebuilding project will go to enhanced safety and throughput measures that will not be covered by insurance, but the remainder is covered and is therefore not included in the capital budget.

Husky, which is controlled by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing, is basing its capital plan on an oil price of US$55 per barrel of West Texas Intermediate for 2020 and US$60 in 2021.

Its shares were little changed on Monday, having dropped by about one per cent in early afternoon trading. They have fallen by more than 42 per cent in the past 12 months.
