Top oil spills N.L. He raises new questions about the emerging oil industry in the history of the province


An ambitious plan to increase the offshore oil and gas industry, which was recently won by the land of Newfoundland and Labrador, was wicked November 16.

In the midst of a strong winter storm, the Sea Platform of 250,000 liters of oil husky flows from the Husky Sea, St. John is about 350 kilometers away.

The biggest offshore industry history in the province has been called "regulatory changes".

Critics are stepping up industrial control to expand the size and range of the vortex that is growing and growing.

"We decide this fact, how we legislate about laws and the offshore oil and gas Canada and how we organize it," said the Canadian Sierra Club Foundation Gretchen Fitzgerald.

"If this large industrial activity in the North Atlantic waters is underway, it must have a better regulatory regulation."

At this time, there are platforms that produce four fireplaces of oil: Hibernia, Hebron, Terra Nova and SeaRose.

The expansion plans have proposed 100 new exploration sites and more than 650,000 barrels per day by 2030. The long-term view also includes "short-term production prospects".

The expansion will include the industry in an earthquake-free territory, in the first deep waters of the Bay of North, after announcing the agreement with the Norwegian Equinor Flemish Pass.

The North of the Remote Bay of the North, with more than 500 kilometers of San Juan, has more than 1,100 meters of water, 10 times deeper than SeaRose, the deepest current site.

Premier Dwight Ball called the "offshore" offshore industry, but deep water expansion also leads to new concerns about employee safety, and it may be a quick cleansing if there is another leak.

The oil regions require economic boost to the economically-linked provinces.

The Canadian Commission's report has been announced this month that Newfoundland and Labrador will bring all of the economic growth provinces in 2019, after the worst economic forecasts of 2018, with oil revenues reaching all their credit.

In an interview, Balle said the spillage of November was "misfortunes" and confirmed the priority and safety of its government employees.

The Lehendakari said the government would adopt regulatory change, transparent, public and accessible extracts of operator security plans, based on discoveries of SeaRose research.

"Once we have completed and completed this research, if we are to make changes, we are ready to implement these changes," said Balle.

The Lehendakari has said that his government is looking for jurisdictions of other worlds, to expand the industry and to prepare potential events in the future.

New Zealand Tender and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) for the development of industrial province, as well as security and environmental responsibilities.

As a result of rain, Husky restarted production on November 16, since the start of the storm, the company was the decision not on the seafront.

Operators like Husky are responsible for the internal safety and environmental plans approved by themselves, which inspects and investigates for malfunctioning.

Husky Energy offer

SeaRose's production stays in the offshore panel, whether or not the company continued its internal procedures.

Husky offers procedures to a board, but The Canadian Press has informed the Husky spokesman that "it does not publish its specific operational procedures publicly for security and commercial reasons."

Critics say Transparency of the operator means that a possible area of ​​reform could be extended to more dangerous conditions of industrial expansion.

Ball said his government has given Equinor time to evaluate drilling in deep water as it is successfully constructed tentatively starting in 2020.

His government will look at other jurisdictions, as he is preparing for new deep water businesses, he believes that the industry's career is quite clear in the long term.

"When you look, our record is pretty good," Ball said.

The offshore oil company does not have a history of more than a number of oil spills, but it has been marked by destructive tragedies.

The 1982 Ocean Ranger disaster still retains the province. The offshore platform stormed a stormy storm, claiming 84 people's lives.

In March 2009, Cougar Flight 491 fell to the sea and personnel were taken to the oil field, with 17 people killed by 17 people.

After a survey on helicopter safety, Commissioner Robert Wells of 2010 called the offshore conditions of Newfoundland "probably the toughest coastline in the world", with cold and cold water, with heavy winds, sea-frosts, clouds, sea-breeze and helicopter flights.

Wells established an independent and independent offshore industry in the province.

The recommendation was made in the NDP province, after the final sequestration of SeaRose, they asked to recommend a similar safety and environmental committee to Norway and the United Kingdom.

Work Payne, the Atlantic Regional Director of Unifor, in Hibernian and Terra Nova platforms in 700 seafaring oil workers, said he has seen some improvement in industrial safety from the helicopter safety questionnaire.

But the unions still see more, among other things, to establish a security and environmental committee, especially in the final call.

"This word of security should never be used, but we got good luck," said Payne.

There were 81 people during the seizure of SeaRose, and when there were no injuries, the incident demanded some other security incident that was not long ago on the same platform.

An offshore study found that the company did not have an ice management plan in the spring of 2017 with a large iceberg. The boat was not disconnected, as the iceberg approached 84 people and 340,000 barrels of oil barrels upwards.

Fitzgerald believes that the Department of Environmental Canada and the Fisheries and Oceanography Department should have regulatory power to ensure industry-leading care of environmental experts.

The federation of the industrial sector would also help maintain national environmental preferences, under the protection of climate change and endangered species, Fitzgerald said.

Payne said at least that the regulator needs specialization and more employees by rapidly expanding the sector.

"There will be a lot of pressure in the system so it can be done quickly, and when you do it in an environment when offshore things go wrong," said Payne.

"We need to do everything here, that it will not happen."
