Status of Other Offshore Facilities

The HMDC-operated Hibernia platform was authorized to recommence production operations last evening on November 21, after they completed all necessary inspections on the facility and production systems. The number of persons onboard will remain at 175 until all necessary repairs, inspection and analysis to the damaged lifeboats are complete. Hibernia will also need to inspect their subsea systems (which include the Offshore Loading System) and all drilling systems prior to resuming drilling and offloading operations. Certifying Authority concurrence that these systems are fit for purpose post storm is also required, prior to resuming those operations.
