Statoil Canada Ltd. is planning to continue its search for oil off Newfoundland this year.
The company has announced it will conduct a two-well exploration drilling program in the Flemish Pass Basin in mid-2017.
The program is a follow-up campaign to Statoil’s previous exploration activities in the basin.
The two planned wells are near-field prospects to the 2013 Bay du Nord discovery.
