Scotian Basin Exploration Drilling Project

BP Canada Energy Group ULC is proposing to conduct an exploration drilling program approximately 230 to 370 kilometres off the southeast coast of Nova Scotia, consisting of up to seven exploration wells within Exploration Licenses 2431, 2432, 2433, and 2434. It would take place over a three year period starting in 2018 pending required approvals. Specific drilling locations would be determined using seismic data gathered as part of BP’s 3D seismic exploration program conducted in 2014.
