Dear Mr. Edwards,

SUBJECT: Outcome of Conformity Review of Responses to Additional Round II Information Requirements (IRs) for the proposed Eastern Newfoundland Offshore Exploration Drilling Project

I am writing to inform you of the results of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency's (Agency) review of ExxonMobil Canada Ltd's (ExxonMobil) responses to Additional Round II Information Requirements (IRs), sent to ExxonMobil by the Agency on October 9, 2018. The Agency requires acceptable responses to IRs in order to complete its review of the EIS and to proceed with the preparation of its Environmental Assessment Report.

The Agency has determined that the IR responses are sufficient to proceed with technical review. The Agency will review the IR responses and will seek input from government expert departments and Indigenous participants. Further information may be requested based on the outcome of the review.

The timeline for the environmental assessment will resume as of November 27, 2018. For further information, please consult the Agency document Information Requests and Timelines
