Husky Energy has confirmed that a medium size iceberg (approximately 40m wide x 60m long x 8m high above water) came within 180 meters of the SeaRose FPSO at approximately 5:30 a.m. on March 29, 2017.
The iceberg, while being monitored by Husky Energy, changed course and headed towards the SeaRose. Husky mobilized its Regional Response Management Team and the C-NLOPB was notified of the situation. Production wells were de-pressurized and the flowlines flushed with treated seawater. The crew mustered in preparation for a potential disconnect. The iceberg passed the vessel and was outside of the 500M zone by 6:00 a.m. on March 29, 2017.
The C-NLOPB is following up on this incident with the Operator.
