Flame detected aboard Hibernia platform

A fire broke out this week aboard the Hibernia platform, offshore Canada.

According to Canadian safety authority Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (CNLOP) the incident involved a flame originating from under the insulation of a high pressure cleaning unit on the Hibernia Platform.

“On May 9 at approximately 7:30 a.m., two workers observed the flame and immediately shut down the high pressure cleaning unit. A portable extinguisher was used to quickly extinguish the flame,” CNLOPB said in a report on Wednesday.

The safety watchdog said there were no injuries associated with this incident and that the operator is investigating the cause.

Hibernia is an oil field in the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately 315 kilometres east-southeast of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, in 80 m of water.

It is operated by Hibernia Management and Development Company. The shareholders of HMDC are: ExxonMobil Canada (33.125%), Chevron Canada Resources (26.875%), Suncor (20%), Canada Hibernia Holding Corporation (8.5%), Murphy Oil (6.5%) and Statoil Canada (5%).
