Abstract

The continental shelf of Labrador and Newfoundland has a long history of hydrocarbon exploration, and the accumulated oil production from the northern Grand Banks exceeds one billion barrels (Fig.1). The Canada-Newfoundland & Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (www.cnlopb.ca) awarded several new licenses on the northern Grand Banks in 2015 and announced licensing rounds for the Labrador Sea region in the coming years.
