Husky refinery rebuild in Wisconsin restarts construction after ceasing works in March

Husky Energy of Alberta has recently begun returning construction crews to the company’s rebuilding project in Wisconsin after the COVID-19 pandemic precautions caused this reconstruction to be placed on hold. 

The Superior refinery experienced a series of explosions in April 2018, and Husky began rebuilding plans to allow 45,000 bpd of capacity to recommence in late 2021.  The original plans included cost estimates of $400 million, but these costs have risen to $750 million dollars.  Husky spent $113 million on this rebuild in 2019 before ceasing construction works in March.  Most of the rebuild cost is expected to be covered by insurance, but Husky expects to spend up to $200 million in pandemic related modernizations and enhanced safety features as this project progresses.
