Jeanne D'Arc Basin Exploration Drilling Project

Husky Oil Operations Limited (Husky) and ExxonMobil Canada Limited (ExxonMobil) is proposing to conduct an exploration drilling project within offshore exploration licenses on the Grand Banks, located approximately 350 kilometres east of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, in the Atlantic Ocean. As proposed, the Jeanne D'Arc Basin Exploration Drilling Project would allow the proponent, over a nine-year period, to determine the presence, nature, and quantities of the potential hydrocarbon resource in exploration licences 1151A, 1151B, 1152 and 1155.

Please note that the project was formerly known as Husky Energy Exploration Drilling Project.
