Husky Energy has reported an unauthorized discharge of Blowout Preventer (BOP) control fluid from the Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU) Henry Goodrich, which occurred on March 26, 2017. Husky Energy estimates that 6397 L of BOP control fluid (68% water, 28% Glycol and 4% Stack Magic) was released to the environment.

The drilling rig was disconnected from the BOP at the time of the release and had moved off the well due to impending weather.
