Plugging of Flowline and Recovery of Flowline Connector
Husky’s plan for plugging of the flowline and recovery of the failed flowline connector continues to be assessed by the C-NLOPB, in consultation with partner agencies. The C-NLOPB and partner agencies are continuing to meet with Husky regarding the proposed approach prior to Husky’s plan being approved for implementation.
In the meantime, the C-NLOPB continues its investigation into the mid-November incident.
Flushing and Testing – Central Drill Centre
The C-NLOPB is in the final stages of reviewing Husky’s plan to flush the flowlines in the central Drill Centre (CDC) back to the SeaRose, and then to integrity test those flowlines using hot seawater.
The CDC is on an independent loop to the SeaRose and is not affected by the situation at the South White Rose Drill Centre, where the mid-November spill occurred.
Husky’s plan has been approved by an independent Certifying Authority. Certifying Authority verification of flowlines, moorings, SeaRose topsides and hull is in place.
When the flushing and testing is underway, Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) and aerial surveillance will be conducted and Tier 1 spill response equipment will be available on scene.
Further discussion with the operator will be required prior to C-NLOPB approval being granted for Husky to resume production from the CDC. Those discussions are ongoing.
