Noia Congratulates Liberal Party and Incoming Premier Dwight Ball on Election Victory

Posted in Releases on December 03, 2015

Robert Cadigan, President and CEO of the Newfoundland and Labrador Oil & Gas Industries Association (Noia), today offered congratulations to incoming Premier Dwight Ball and the provincial Liberal party on their victory in the 20th Newfoundland and Labrador general election.

“On behalf of our more than 630 members, congratulations to all newly elected Members of the House of Assembly and their leader, Dwight Ball.  We are confident that Noia and the new Liberal government will work effectively together to renew the province’s oil & gas industry, as outlined in our recently released vision, Redefining Oil,” said Mr. Cadigan.

One of the pillars of Redefining Oil is renewed governance. Noia believes that government and industry must work together to develop a long-term vision and a strategy for the further development of a competitive and competent local supply and service community. To this end, Noia recommends the establishment of an Industry Council to formulate the vision and strategy, and an Industry Development Agency for implementation, monitoring and feedback.

“We were pleased to see that the Liberal party’s vision aligns with Noia’s, as laid out in the party’s policy platform in the form of a body mandated to create a transparent energy policy with a focus on developing a more sustainable and competitive industry and the alignment of project benefits agreements with established long-term vision and goals,” added Sean Power, Chair of Noia’s Board of Directors. “We look forward to working with industry and government to renew the provincial oil & gas industry, for the benefit of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians.”
