The Proposed Project

Chevron Canada Limited is proposing to conduct an exploration drilling project within its exploration license in the Flemish Pass, located approximately 375 kilometres northeast of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, in the Atlantic Ocean. As proposed, the West Flemish Pass Exploration Drilling Project would allow the proponent to determine the presence, nature, and quantities of the potential hydrocarbon resource in exploration license 1138.
