Hibernia has been producing oil and gas for over 25 years. Its world-class platform design was specially built to withstand impacts from large icebergs that can be found in the production field. To extend the life of the asset, improve reliability and reduce emissions, cutting-edge, cost-effective technologies are being employed. Current drilling technology has enabled wells that reach up to 8.5 kilometres (5.3 miles) in length and are drilled to a depth of almost 4,700 metres (15,400 feet).
