A number of solutions have been successfully implemented for producing oil and gas off Canada’s east coast, where impacts by icebergs are a possibility. In future, as operators move further offshore to deeper water and further north where the numbers and sizes of icebergs may increase, new solutions for avoiding impacts will be required to limit ice strengthening requirements and ice related downtime costs. A potential solution is the use of facility side-tracking, where a floating system is designed to move laterally to avoid approaching icebergs. This paper discusses the issues involved including the need for improved short-term iceberg drift forecasting.
