Well issues set back Terra Nova maintenance

Offshore staff

CALGARY, Canada -- Suncor Energy plans to postpone a 15-week dockside maintenance program for the Terra Nova FPSO until next year. The program had originally been planned to start this July on the vessel, which operates offshore Newfoundland.

The deferral should allow resolution of the presence of hydrogen sulfide in certain wells, which has caused partial shut-ins of production on the Terra Nova field, to be implemented concurrently.

A four-week annual maintenance outage at Terra Nova is still planned this summer.

Elsewhere off eastern Canada, the company is considering drilling an exploratory well in the Ballicatters field.
