On July 15, 2016, Husky Energy reported an Unauthorized Discharge which resulted in the Impairment of Safety Critical Equipment on the Henry Goodrich Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit.
Approximately 1800 L of hydraulic fluid was released to the environment during drilling operations .This release in fluid caused a rapid drop in pressure which immediately activated the Blowout Preventer (BOP). The BOP functioned as intended and secured the well.
There were no injuries associated with this incident, the well is secured, and all drilling operations have been suspended. The C-NLOPB is reviewing the incident and Husky Energy is continuing to investigate.
