The production restart follows completion of the Terra Nova Asset Life Extension project.
In 2021, Suncor and Terra Nova partners agreed to undertake Terra Nova Asset Life Extension Project to extend operational life of the project by about ten years.
Suncor plans to ramp up production at the FPSO vessel in the coming few months.
The FPSO has undergone repairs at a port in Ferrol, northwestern Spain to extend operational life through 2031, reported cbc.ca.
Suncor president and CEO Rich Kruger said: “Focusing on safety and operational integrity, we have brought this key offshore project online, providing additional cash flow for our shareholders as well as many benefits to the Newfoundland and Labrador and Canadian economies.
