|Newfoundland and Labrador’s Offshore Oil and Gas Industry: Defining the Opportunity|
The resource potential in offshore Newfoundland and Labrador is significant. In less than 7% of the province’s offshore, independent resource assessments estimate there is a combined resource potential of 49.2 billion barrels of oil and 193.8 trillion cubic feet of gas. There have been eight new global exploration and production companies enter the area in the past three years, and $3.9 billion in exploration work commitments made throughout the last four years.
Jim will present on Nalcor’s exploration strategy and the role this strategy is playing in finding new oil and gas resources for the province and how the strategy is reducing risk and uncertainty for global investment.
