Incident Bulletin – Near Miss with Potential for Fatality on Terra Nova FPSO

July 9, 2019

Suncor Energy has reported that on June 24, 2019 a worker on the Terra Nova FPSO was exposed to hazardous contents of a slop tank (i.e., hydrogen sulfide and benzene).

Immediately after the incident, the slop tank work scope was stopped and a health assessment of the worker was completed for potential exposure of harmful substances from the slops system. Following medical assessment, the worker was cleared for regular duties and no treatment was required. The incident was initially classified as a Near Miss (Leak of Hazardous Substance).

After further investigation by Suncor Energy, it has been determined that due to the potential concentrations of hydrogen sulfide inside the slop tank, the incident has been re-classified as a Near Miss with Potential for Fatality.

The C-NLOPB is monitoring Suncor Energy’s continued investigation and follow-up in response to the incident.
