The incident
On 22 February 2013, during hurricane conditions, the
FPSO, due to operator error, lost its heading against the
weather and waves.
This caused first one anchor line to break and further four
more of the 10 anchor chains breaking within the space of 3
hours.
This caused the FPSO to drift 250 meters away from its
station with consequential destruction of the attached risers
and umbilicals and damage to connected subsea flowlines.
Production had been stopped, wellheads closed and risers
depressurised at the onset of the hurricane.
The FPSO had 800,000 barrels of produced oil in the
storage tanks on board. Sales value USD100 per barrel.

Immediate actions
Tugs and anchor handlers were called in to assist in
holding the FPSO on station and attempt to reconnect the
broker anchor chains.
Due to the threat of further bad weather the decision was
taken to cut the risers, umbilicals and remaining anchor
chains to move the FPSO to port.
