Further detailed information about each of the parcels in the three Calls for Bids and the licence terms and conditions is available here.

Prospective bidders are advised that the C-NLOPB is currently updating the Western Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Report and will complete a report for the Eastern Newfoundland SEA in 2014.

With respect to Calls for Bids Nos.

Notification of any changes to these Calls for Bids will be posted on the Board's website.
