Equinor receives discovery license for “significant” oil find offshore Canada
(WO) – The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) has issued Significant Discovery License 1060 to Equinor Canada Ltd. and is announcing the related volume estimate for the Cambriol G-92 discovery.
The C-NLOPB’s interpretation of well and seismic data associated with this discovery has resulted in an update to the Contingent Resources section of its Petroleum Estimated Ultimate Recovery and Contingent Resources table. The recoverable oil volume from this discovery is estimated to be 340 MMbbl.
The Petroleum Resources Management System adopted by the C-NLOPB defines Contingent Resources as “volumes of hydrocarbons, expressed at 50% probability, assessed to be technically recoverable that have not been delineated and have unknown economic viability.” This includes oil in fields/pools that are not approved for development.
