In accordance with its “Policy Respecting Public Disclosure of Incidents and Related Information”, the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) advises that yesterday afternoon, the Chief Safety Officer (CSO) issued an Order to Suncor Energy pursuant to Part III.1 of the Atlantic Accord Implementation Acts.
The CSO ordered Suncor to ensure a fall protection system is used for all vertical ladders greater than six meters in length that are not fitted with a protective cage, at or near the Terra Nova Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel. The Order follows the C-NLOPB’s review of Suncor’s investigation report into the December 30, 2019 incident that resulted in an injured worker on the Terra Nova FPSO. Suncor’s investigation report was received by the C-NLOPB on January 12, 2020.
The C-NLOPB’s review of this matter continues, including follow up offshore by Safety Officers who are currently onboard the Terra Nova FPSO.
Production-related operations on the Terra Nova FPSO were previously suspended and the suspension will continue until the regulatory non-compliance identified by the CSO in the Notice to Suspend issued on December 19, has been addressed to the satisfaction of the CSO.
