Effective Environmental Assessment Processes Critical to Offshore Development

Posted in Releases on February 01, 2018

February 1, 2018 (St. John’s, NL) -- With legislative changes imminent, the Newfoundland and Labrador Oil & Gas Industries Association, Noia, continues to advocate for renewed environmental assessment processes and calls on the federal government to designate the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) as Responsible Authority (RA) for these assessments.

“The C-NLOPB’s excellent track record proves it has the expertise and experience required to conduct these assessments and should be designated RA, as it was previously,” said Charlene Johnson, Noia CEO. “The C-NLOPB is a reputable, arms length regulator that employs more than 85 experienced policy and operational experts dedicated to ensuring environmental protection. Located in close physical proximity to our offshore operations, they know the industry, have hands-on experience in the province’s harsh offshore environment and are best placed to take the lead role in environmental assessments.”

Oil & Gas Development Must be a By-Election Issue

Posted in Releases on November 30, 2017

St. John’s, NL – The Newfoundland and Labrador Oil & Gas Industries Association (Noia) is calling on all candidates in the upcoming Bonavista-Burin-Trinity by-election to fully understand the importance of the offshore oil & gas industry to the economic future of the area and for voters to know where all candidates stand on industry-related issues before marking their ballots on December 11.

“The offshore oil & gas industry has been a significant economic contributor to the area since Hibernia construction in the 1990s,” said Andrew Bell, Chair of Noia’s Board of Directors. “And more recently, during its six years of construction at Bull Arm, the Hebron oil production platform created thousands of well-paid construction jobs, with 3,700 individuals working on the project as of late 2016. Similarly, the Kiewit Cow Head Fabrication Facility in Marystown was a major employer through Hibernia, topsides work for White Rose, the Hebron DSM as well as rig modification repair. People from all over the province were employed at these sites, occupying nearly every available rental property and boosting local businesses. However, with the completion of Hebron, recent layoffs at the Come by Chance Refinery and uncertainty in the fishing industry, timely development of the offshore industry is critical, now more than ever, to the economic future of the area.”

Noia Calls on Federal Government to Ensure NL Maintains Fraser Institute Ranking

Posted in Releases on November 30, 2017

St. John's, NL Newfoundland and Labrador now ranks as the most attractive Canadian jurisdiction for oil & gas investment and the fourth most attractive jurisdiction worldwide this year, cites the annual global survey of petroleum-sector executives released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan, Canadian public policy think-tank.

“Newfoundland and Labrador has world class resources that are comparable to oil & gas jurisdictions such as Norway, the UK and the Gulf of Mexico,” said Andrew Bell, Chair of Noia’s Board of Directors. “While we are very pleased to see these results, Noia is calling on the Federal Government to ensure that this ranking does not fall due to proposed legislative changes to the environmental assessment process and other over-regulation that only impedes timely development of our offshore oil and gas resources.”
