The Hibernia field is managed and operated for the owners by Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd (HMDC). Sound environmental and safety practices have been a priority for HMDC and the Hibernia owners since the discovery of the field in 1979. The Hibernia production platform has been designed using the best available technology in a safe and environmentally responsible way. The Hibernia platform will benchmark safety and environmental responsibility for the industry world-wide during its production life.
Hibernia’s commitment to sound environmental, safety and quality practices is reflected in its Environment, Safety, and Quality Management System (ESQMS). This system fulfills Hibernia’s business needs for safe and environmentally responsible operations. A strong focus by Hibernia personnel on effective environmental and safety training and practices has resulted in a steady improvement in performance over the construction period.
Hibernia received the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists Environmental Award in 1995 and received the Government of Newfoundland Safety Performance Award in early 1996 for 500,000 consecutive hours worked at the Topsides facilities without a lost-time accident.
