Session One will take a deep dive into what makes the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore attractive to the global industry. There will be a focus on the extensive seismic program undertaken offshore – one of the longest running seismic program in the world – from those leading the program, the provincial oil & gas corporation. Further, an in-depth look at the over 650 leads and prospects and 20 basins will take delegates into the underwater geology of the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore. The newest operator entrant into the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore, BHP Billiton – with a record bid in the most recent Call for Bids process – will discuss why the company has invested in the area.
