2018 was a busy year in Atlantic Canada for all aspects of offshore development. The Hebron project continued to ramp up ahead of expectations, while development drilling programs are currently underway at all four producing projects in Newfoundland and Labrador. Husky announced exploration success at its White Rose project, with BP filing for an environmental assessment to begin exploration of the Orphan Basin. To cap it off, the 2018 call for bids from the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) fetched a record amount of work commitments totalling Cdn$1.4 billion.
