Suncor Energy Offshore methanol leak being probed

Suncor Energy is investigating after a methanol leak was discovered from a subsea drill centre in the Terra Nova field. The leak occurred on Wednesday, Sept. 30. Suncor estimates that 3,000 litres of methanol were released into the sea. Methanol pumping was stopped once the leak was detected and a remotely operated vehicle found a subsea methanol line to be the source. The Canadian-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board is reviewing the incident and Suncor is also investigating. link 10:33
