Husky Energy Inc., the Canadian energy company controlled by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing, said it’s suspending fourth-quarter dividend payments and reducing spending as the oil-price collapse worsens.

The company plans to spend C$2.1 billion to C$2.3 billion ($1.44 billion to $1.58 billion), down from a previous estimate of C$2.9 billion to C$3.1 billion, Husky said in a statement Tuesday. It’s also considering the partial sale of some pipelines and storage terminals in the Lloydminster region in Western Canada.
