Canada: White Rose wells remain shut-in after large oil spill

first_imgAll wells at the Husky Energy-operated White Rose field offshore Canada have been shut-in, following a 250,000-liter oil spill at the SeaRose FPSO, dubbed the largest spill in Newfoundland and Labrador’s history.SeaRose FPSO; Photo by: Berardo62; Source: Wikimedia – under the CC BY-SA 2.0 licenseAccording to an incident disclosure released by the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) on Friday, the SeaRose FPSO experienced a loss of pressure from a subsea flowline to the South White Rose Drill Center, which is located in the White Rose field, approximately 350 km southeast from St. John’s.The incident happened while Husky was preparing to restart production, which had been suspended due to Thursday’s weather.To remind, ExxonMobil was one of the operators to shut-in production at one of its platforms last week following adverse weather conditions offshore Canada. ExxonMobil’s giant Hebron platform is located about 350 kilometers offshore Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital St John’s, in the Jeanne d’Arc basin.Initial estimates from Husky were that 250 cubic meters (250,000 liters) of oil were released to the environment. The C-NLOPB said that there were no injuries.The regulator added on Friday that all wells were in a safe state and production operations remained suspended as Husky investigates the cause of the spill. Production operations will not resume until it is safe to do so and until Husky has received approval from the C-NLOPB. Investigating the cause  One of the worst storms since 1982  In an update on Sunday, C-NLOPB said there had been no reports of workers getting hurt during last week’s storm, which was one of the worst this region has seen offshore since the Ocean Ranger disaster in 1982.The regulator stated that Husky had confirmed that all wells were shut-in and secure and that production and drilling operations were shut-in as well and would remain so for the foreseeable future.Four surveillance flights and an offshore support vessel have been deployed since Friday to help assess the extent of the spill and look for any effects on wildlife. To date, no affected marine life or seabirds have been seen by government and industry observers in the vicinity of the spill and its trajectory.The regulator noted that there is no reason to believe based on the flight results that this is an ongoing spill, and it is believed to be a “batch spill”.Husky will deploy a Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) to inspect subsea assets as soon as sea states have subsided to enable safe launching of the ROV. An updated estimate of the volume of the spill and other information should be available following the ROV deployment and subsea inspection. The C-NLOPB will now carefully review Husky Energy’s ongoing response, the company’s investigation report when ready and its Operations Authorization in light of this incident and the one last year involving the near miss of an iceberg with the SeaRose FPSO. The C-NLOPB issued its final inquiry report into SeaRose FPSO’s near-miss incident with an iceberg in August 2018. The findings and contributing factors of the final inquiry report were the same as those in C-NLOPB’s preliminary report.Canada’s regulator will also formally investigate the White Rose spill in an effort to confirm the root cause, release the findings of the C-NLOPB investigation to the public as soon as they are available, and take whatever enforcement action is deemed appropriate in this incident.In the wake of the oil spill at the White Rose field, the C-NLOPB CEO and senior staff have been in contact with other operators in the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area. Operations at other facilities will not resume until the C-NLOPB has determined that it is safe to do so.Offshore Energy Today Stafflast_img read more

Watch: SWEL Trials WEC Technology at LiR

first_img<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Sea Wave Energy Ltd. (SWEL) recently tested its technology at the LiR National Ocean Test Facility in Cork, Ireland as part of the Fast Tracked Product Development phase of the ProtoAtlantic project. During the trials in Cork, SWEL completed its tests and obtained data and readings from its WEC model, the Waveline Magnet 10.The model was put through its paces at the facilities, gathering data regarding its performance, behaviour and interaction with the waves.Reportedly, the results showed that the Waveline Magnet is set to make a huge contribution to the wave energy arena.In terms of future development, SWEL has already started the construction of a larger model (WM 11) representing an estimated scale 1:30, to be tested in early 2020. This will allow SWEL to confirm the scaled up commercial viability of the Waveline Magnet before moving onto commercial implementation.SWEL’s Chrysostomos (Tommy) Zakheos, said: “ProtoAtlantic is a valuable platform that has enriched our development efforts, facilitating a straightforward route for gaining access to the facilities and expertise required to grow. The whole ProtoAtlantic experience was both educational and constructive, setting a solid milestone on the road towards commercialization.”Source: ProtoAtlanticlast_img read more

Indiana Mourns Loss Of State Rep. Phyllis Pond

first_imgPhyllis Pond passed away on Sunday.Phyllis Pond, a former State Representative and the longest serving state representative in Indiana history died Sunday.Rep. Pond was elected to the state legislature in 1978. She was the first female lawmaker to earn a seat in the front row in the House Chamber, which is reserved for House leaders or representatives with the most seniority.“Today, the State of Indiana mourns the loss of a leader and a friend to all Hoosiers. Phyllis was a revered colleague, a strong voice for her district and a compassionate conservative who always stood by her principles,” said House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis).Prior to being elected to the legislature, Rep. Pond worked as a kindergarten teacher. From this experience, she authored the Primetime Education Bill which capped kindergarten through third grade classroom sizes at 18. During her 35 years of service in the House, she was also instrumental in crafting many other key pieces of legislation to improve the livelihood and education of Hoosier students.Reminiscent of her days in the classroom, for her last few years as a legislator, Rep. Pond cast her votes with a ruler. This allowed her to vote without reaching across the desk to push the buttons – an idea which she couldn’t believe took her 30 years to think of.She was also very passionate about giving back to those who have served our country. During the holidays, she always encouraged people to send cards and words of encouragement to the service men and women fighting overseas. To her, it was the least she could do to say thank you and show her support.“Phyllis has been a steadfast leader in our caucus and has forged a new path for women legislators in Indiana. Her dedication and service will continue to be fondly remembered by all. She will undoubtedly be missed,” said Speaker Bosma.last_img read more

Former Congressional Democratic candidate loses fight with COVID

first_imgGreensburg, IN—COVID-19 continues to devastate communities.  Late Wednesday evening Greensburg, Southeastern Indiana, as well as Eastern Indiana lost a political soldier in the fight against the virus. James “Jim” Pruett was a lawyer in Greensburg, known for his humor but also known for his politics.  Most in the area might remember Jim, as he ran for the Sixth District Congressional spot in the 2018 Primary on the Democrat ticket.  Jim tirelessly shared his beliefs on LGBTQIA rights, on Social Security laws, increasing the minimum wage and more.  And though he ultimately lost in the Primary, he very much supported Jeanine Lee Lake in her race against the future Congressman Greg Pence that year.  Jim also served the community he lived and worked in on the Greensburg Aviation Commission for several years and perhaps you enjoyed his talents on the Tree County Players stage. Jim leaves behind his wife Mimi, his high school sweetheart, and two children, Cindy and Jay, along with several other loving family members.last_img read more
