“Bay du Nord” Project Has Potential To Create Jobs and Generate Low Carbon Sources of Oil
Posted April 5, 2022
The “Bay du Nord” project is an oil and gas exploration and extraction project planned along Newfoundland’s Jeanne d’Arc Basin and Flemish Pass areas.

While many industrialized and developing countries are gradually transitioning to a greener and “Net Zero” economy, low carbon fossil fuels will still be in demand as we adjust to a “Low Carbon Footprint World”.

Because most of “Bay du Nord” project’s oil is light crude with thickness ranging from maple syrup to water, Newfoundland and Labrador will be able to produce oil with lower carbon footprint, create employment, and meet our demands for petroleum products while we transition to a greener world.

According to Equinor, the “Bay du Nord” project will generate $3.5 billion in additional tax revenue for Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, create 11,000 per years of employment, and will extract a total of 300 million barrels of low carbon crude oil if the project is approved.

Since the “Bay du Nord” project has potential to create thousands of skilled trades and indirect jobs, are you ready?
