On Sunday evening, December 29, 2019, Suncor Energy reported an incident that occurred earlier in the day, in which a worker on the Terra Nova FPSO was injured after falling from a ladder while conducting gas testing. The offshore medic and emergency response team were called to the scene. The injured worker was transferred to St. John’s by medevac on Sunday evening and is currently in the hospital under medical care.
An Order to Suspend production-related operations on the Terra Nova FPSO had been previously issued by the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) on December 19, 2019 in response to another issue. The task being undertaken by the injured worked was safety-focused and was not included in the scope of suspended activity.
The C-NLOPB is reviewing this incident, along with others that have recently taken place on facilities operated by Suncor Energy in the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area.
Production-related operations remain suspended on the Terra Nova FPSO and will not resume until Suncor Energy has received approval from the C-NLOPB.
