Man overboard offshore Canada

A man fell overboard last weekend from the Statoil-operated semi-submersible rig West Hercules, offshore St. John’s, Canada.

Statoil has notified the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board of the incident which occurred during the early morning of May 16, 2015. The person was recovered by the Maersk Clipper’s Fast Rescue Craft, transported back to the West Hercules and placed under the care of the medic.

The person was described to be in stable condition. A medevac was sent to transport the worker to hospital.

Statoil is conducting an internal investigation into the incident. The C-NLOPB has begun an investigation into the incident.

The West Hercules is operating in support of a Statoil Canada Ltd. exploration drilling program, located approximately 500 kilometres east of St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador.
