SeaRose FPSO Production Remains On Hold

January 7, 2019

Oil production continues to be suspended at the SeaRose FPSO, about 350 kilometers east of St. John’s for the last 50 days. There’s no information on when production will resume.

Production was suspended and shutdown began on November 16 after two spills -  an estimated 250,000-liter spill - following a storm.

Efforts were underway to resume production after the storm when a failed flowline connector near the South White Rose Extension drill center caused oil to be spilled into the environment.

According to a notification from Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB), "shutdown maintenance activities are ongoing at the SeaRose FPSO, and production operations remain suspended."

Vessel, satellite and ROV inspections at the South White Rose Extension are continuing, it said.

"Our focus remains on reviewing Husky’s plan for plugging of the flowline and recovery of the failed flowline connector to ensure the work can be carried out in a safe and environmentally responsible manner," the board stated.

Husky has submitted a plan to deal with the separated subsea flowline and will meet with C-NLOPB staff this week to review. The plan must be approved by the C-NLOPB and partner agencies before being implemented.

The C-NLOPB continues its investigation into the mid-November incident.
