(Reuters) - Tidewater Midstream TWM.TO said on Friday Canadian oil and gas producer Husky Energy HSE.TO has delivered a force majeure notice on offtake agreements from the Prince George Refinery because of drop in demand for refined products due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Companies invoke force majeure when they cannot meet their contractual obligations because of circumstances beyond their control.
Tidewater said it is evaluating the merits of the force majeure, and expects its first- and second quarter earnings to be impacted by between 10% and 20%.
