Atlantic Canada oil spill caused by weak flowline connection

WINNIPEG, Manitoba, Nov 20 (Reuters) - A weak connector on an oil flowline during a fierce Atlantic storm caused a spill last week off the coast of Newfoundland & Labrador, Husky Energy Inc said on Tuesday.

Husky, the operator of the White Rose Field, detected the problem on Monday during surveys conducted by a remotely operated underwater vehicle, company spokeswoman Colleen McConnell said. (Reporting by Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Manitoba)
