Terra Nova is a Floating Production Storage and Offloading Vessel (FPSO) located in the Terra Nova oil and gas field, approximately 350 kilometers (220 mi) east-southeast off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Terra Nova field is operated by Petro-Canada, with a 33.9% interest.

The Terra Nova field is south of the successful Hibernia field and the more recent White Rose field. All three fields are in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin on the eastern edge of the famous Grand Banks fishing territory.

Terra Nova lost 165,000 liters of oil into the ocean in 2004 because of two mechanical failures. In June 2006, production on Terra Nova was halted as the platform was sent to Rotterdam for a refit. She returned to the Terra Nova field on 25 September 2006.
