  • Chinese oil company gets go-ahead for exploration drilling in Flemish Pass Basin

    The federal government has approved the proposal of a new offshore exploration drilling project set to begin in the Flemish Pass Basin — about 400 kilometres east of Newfoundland and Labrador.
    Look at all these green jobs, you two faced SOB JT. Unbelievable
    sucking up to China, while two Canadian citizens, sit and rot in China's jails, what a disgusting leader.
    Animals are my passion.

    so you wanted JT to personally intervene in this business like he did with SNC Lavalin?


    If this deal was for Alberta and created hundreds of jobs for the province, you would be doing hand flips....

    We all know who is the two faced SOB is...

    The reality and larger part of the story that you failed to provide sources.

    "The decision was made following a thorough and science-based environmental assessment process concluding that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects when mitigation measures are taken into account," the federal government said in a news release.

    Federal Environment and Climate Change Minister Jonathan Wilkinson established 101 legally binding conditions that the proponent, the China National Offshore Oil Corporation, must follow for the entirety of the project.

    CNOOC bid $300 million for two offshore exploration licenses.
    "We have $4 billion committed to exploration offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. And that of course will drive success and drive discovery and that's what we hope to have happen."

    Coady said through seismic review and independent verification there are an estimated 650 leads and prospects for offshore oil.

    "There could be 650 Hibernias, in other words. I don't expect there is, but [there] will be discoveries made in offshore Newfoundland and Labrador and we want to make sure that companies are focused on environmental protection and, of course, safety of its workers," she said.

    On top of CNOOC, eight other new entrants have entered Newfoundland and Labrador offshore oil in the last number of years, according to Coady.

    Four other oil and gas companies are currently undergoing the federal environmental assessment process, which took CNOOC three years to wade through, but Coady said a regional assessment process should be online midway through 2020.

    BTW, the Flemish Pass Basin is not even in Canada as it is past the 200 nautical mile limit.

      But the whole point is that it DIDN'T happen to Alberta, did it?

        Well if Alberta separates, it will be surrounded by seas on all four sides that will be ripe for offshore drilling. FCOL

        The petty jealousy speaks volumes.

          So you believe that Alberta should shut down the Chinese owned oilsands plants? Not give them millions in tax breaks?

          Interesting

          ​​​​​​
          CNOOC Petroleum North America ULC, originally founded in 1971 as Nexen, is a Chinese-owned oil and gas company based in Calgary, Alberta.

          ​​​​​​Nexen has interests in Canada (including the Athabasca oil sands through a 7.23% ownership of Syncrude and the Long Lake project)

          ​​​​​​On 15 July 2015, the pipeline oil spill at the Long Lake facility near Fort McMurray was discovered in the afternoon[8] by a worker in which the factory's failsafe system was unable to detect.[9][10] As of 16 July 2015, at least 5,000,000 litres (1,100,000 imp gal; 1,300,000 US gal)—or 31,500 barrels[11]—of oil emulsion has been spilt onto an area of approximately 16,000 square metres (170,000 sq ft),[8] although water bodies were not contaminated.[11] Nexen said efforts were made to stabilise the leak,[8] such as shutting down operations at the time of discovery and isolating the area.[11] The company said the pipeline was installed in 2014 and contains an emulsion mixture of bitumen, wastewater, and oil sand.[11][12] Determining the cause of the spill would take months, according to a company employee

              Yeah, the now under construction pipeline means nothing.

              But sure, let's authorize offshore drilling in Alberta. It'll go along nicely with the deep water ports the province will have after Wexit.

                Oh the hypocrisy. Kenney just gave billions of dollars in tax breaks to companies like (Chinese owned) Husky and Nexen, who then divested on Alberta and permaconservative HL continues to defend while pretty much foaming at the mouth in vitriol comments about Trudeau investing in Canadas energy future?

                and since when did you care for green energy jobs? Why are you not concerned about all the green energy jobs lost in Alberta since the UCP came to power and killed those budding industries?

                  School division apologizes after Christmas concert deemed 'anti-oil'



                  A Saskatchewan school division has apologized after parents raised concerns a Christmas concert last week had an anti-oil agenda.

                  On Thursday, the Oxbow Prairie Horizons School's annual concert featured a show titled: "Santa Goes Green."

                  This didn't sit will with some audience members, as Oxbow is a community where a good number of workers are in the mining and resource industries. In fact, the town's logo prominently contains a pumpjack.

                  Mike Gunderman, whose daughter was in the show, took to Facebook to express his concerns about the play, saying the concert was a "kick in the groin" to anyone working in the struggling oil industry.
