C-NLOPB Invites Comments on Draft Western Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area Strategic Environmental Assessment Update Report

The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board
(C-NLOPB) is inviting the public to comment on the Draft Western Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Update report.

A SEA is a broad-based approach to environmental assessment that systematically examines the potential environmental implications of proposed program or policy decisions. The results of a SEA are used to assist the C-NLOPB in its decision to issue licences for marine areas within the Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area.

In December 2005, the C-NLOPB published a SEA for a portion of the Gulf of St. Lawrence referred to as the Western Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area and amended it in November 2007 to extend the geographic coverage to include additional lands southwest of the original 2005 SEA Area. The preparation of the Draft SEA Update report was guided by the February 2012 Scoping Document as well as public and stakeholder consultation and engagement sessions in the Atlantic Provinces and Quebec.

The Draft Western Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Area SEA Update report, as well as its Summary Report, are available in English and French and may be viewed on the Board’s website, or written copies are available upon request. The website address is www.cnlopb.nl.ca.

All responses will be posted to the C-NLOPB website. The responses will not be treated as being confidentially submitted and will be posted in the official language in which they were provided. All identifying information will be removed except the name under which the documents were submitted.

Written comments on the Draft SEA Update will be accepted no later than Monday August 5, 2013. Comments must be sent to the address below or via email to information@cnlopb.nl.ca.
