Busy week in St. John's for those in the oil biz. The NOIA Oil & Gas Conference is on along with the Atlantic Canada Petroleum Show is on at the convention centre.
There are lots of rumors swirling with the fog in St. John's about Hebron and South Hibernia but as Mr. Williams' says, “Don't hold your breath.” As nice …and dramatic, as it might be I don't think they are THAT close to a deal. What you MAY hear is talk about Conoco-Phillips plan for a site survey in the Laurentian Basin on the west coast and a drilling program pending rig availability. But its all rumours, right?
I'll be covering the conference for the Halifax Chronicle-Herald and will also have a display of offshore, business and industrial photos in the The Business Post booth at the show on Wednesday and Thursday so if you are there do stop by and say hello.
