The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board issued approval to Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd to resume production operations at the Hibernia platform. Since the spill occurred in mid-July, C-NLOPB staff have had extensive engagement with HMDC to discuss the cause of the spill, along with a range of corrective measures to ensure production operations can resume safely and without further recurrence. The C-NLOPB is undertaking special oversight of the resumption of production operations, including continued discussions with HMDC regarding learnings and status updates.

The C-NLOPB has received and reviewed HMDC’s Preliminary Investigation Report regarding the incident. HMDC has determined that the oil and water interface layer in the storage cell was the cause. HMDC has removed the current interface layer from the storage cell and is revising its interface management procedures to protect against future possible recurrence. These revised procedures include revisions to minimum water heights in the cells and only producing into cells without residual interface.

The independent Certifying Authority, Lloyd’s Register, has also reviewed and approved the plan to resume production operations.
