Petro-Canada resumes Terra Nova production

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 22 -- Petro-Canada, which received Canada-Newfoundland Offshore Petroleum Board approval in mid-December to resume operation of its Terra Nova floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) platform, has restored production to the FPSO's 160,000 b/d preshutdown level.

The Nov. 21 shutdown was precipitated by a discharge of oily water from the platform (OGJ Online, Nov. 29, 2004). The Terra Nova FPSO operates in deep water 350 km east-southeast of St. John's, Newf., in the Jeanne d'Arc basin.
