Work has resumed on the Hebron oil platform after ExxonMobil received the green light from the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrdor Offshore Petroleum Board.
All work was suspended last week after two incidents. The first happened June 20 when a worker cut into a live electrical cable, but was not injured.
The second happened June 23 when a metal object weighing about 10 pounds fell through the centre shaft. Three workers suffered minor injuries.
Work was suspended until the C-NLOPB’s safety officer could review the situation. The board announced on Twitter Sunday evening that the safety officer was satisfied with ExxonMobil’s response and that operations could continue.
ExxonMobil confirmed on Monday that work has resumed on the Hebron platform.
