Another incident on Terra Nova FPSO

A fire broke out on the Terra Nova FPSO, offshore St. John’s, Canada, on Friday.

Suncor, the operator, reported a grease fire from a char boiler in the galley on the FPSO. According to C-NLOPB, the offshore safety watchdog, the fire was extinguished, with no injuries reported.

The incident happened about 8:20 p.m. on October 10.

Production from the FPSO had already been shut down, following the earlier reported subsea gas leak and a flame detected on the insulation blanket for the lower medium pressure turret swivel.

The Terra Nova FPSO is 292.2 meters long and 45.5 meters wide. It can store 960,000 barrels of oil and accommodate up to 120 personnel while producing.

The Terra Nova oil field is situated on the Grand Banks, about 350 kilometers east-southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland, and 35 kilometers southeast of the Hibernia Oil Field.
