The C-NLOPB is responsible to curate information gathered during the Exploration and Development activities offshore Newfoundland and Labrador. Information is stored and maintained within the C-NLOPB Information Resource Centre.

The centre contains technical information dating back to 1964, acquisition of the first geophysical program and 1966 drilling of the first well (Tors Cove D-52). Submission of information to the C-NLOPB has occurred in different formats over the years including paper, film, microfiche and electronic file. Information that has passed the confidentiality period as specified by the Accord Acts is available to the public.
