Noia, the Newfoundland Growlers and St. John’s Edge are excited to announce a collaborative effort to highlight the importance of the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore oil & gas industry. An “I ❤️ NL Oil & Gas” logo will be featured on the ice by the Growlers and on the court by the Edge for two games in March.
On Saturday, March 9th at 7:00 p.m. the North Division-leading Growlers faceoff against the Orlando Solar Bears in exciting ECHL action and the logo will be placed near centre ice. On Sunday, March 17th at 2:00 p.m. Central Division leaders St. John’s Edge take on the Saint John Riptide and the logo will be placed court side.
Both games will highlight the importance of our offshore oil & gas industry to Newfoundland and Labrador, and indeed Canada. Noia member companies are supporting these events in a big way by purchasing over 3,500 tickets to date. Noia is hosting social media contests to promote the industry. Follow Noia’s social media platforms (@NoiaNL on Twitter & Facebook) leading up to the games for a chance to win game tickets and learn about our industry.
Noia recently released an economic impact study which demonstrates the profound value of our offshore oil & gas industry to the province and country. ImagineThePotential.ca highlights that our industry is by far the largest contributor to the Newfoundland and Labrador economy and also forecasts future potential benefits of over $100 billion in royalties and revenues to the provincial government by 2045. With unprecedented exploration to occur in the coming years offshore, the future of the industry is bright.
“The offshore oil and gas industry provides tremendous value to our province and Noia is pleased to receive the support of both of our professional sports teams, the Newfoundland Growlers and the St. John’s Edge, to help raise awareness and support for our industry. These games are an opportunity for Noia members and those who work in the industry to come together in an exciting atmosphere to show their support. I encourage everyone who believes in the oil and gas industry and those who are looking to learn more about the sector, to come to these games and show their support for offshore oil and gas, and our exceptional teams the Growlers and Edge.” – Charlene Johnson, Noia CEO
“The Newfoundland and Labrador offshore oil and gas industry is a major contributor to our economy.

“The oil and gas industry is a strong part of this province, just as we are the heartbeat of Basketball in the province. Here at the Edge, we are happy to welcome Noia employees, friends, and families to our game on March 17th. It will be a great game and we cannot wait to show those in the oil and gas industry what Edge basketball is all about.” – Carl English, St. John’s Edge
