Before any petroleum-related activity can be undertaken in the Newfoundland & Labrador Offshore area, a detailed and location-specific Environmental Assessment (EA) must be submitted to the Board. In addition, this project is subject to the federal environmental assessment process pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act (CEA Act ). CEA Act requirements indicate this environmental assessment must be reviewed using the comprehensive study process as the project is planned in an area not previously assessed by a comprehensive study or panel.
The draft CSR was completed pursuant to the CEA Act and the Scoping Document prepared by the C-NLOPB. Written public comments on the draft CSR will be accepted by the Board until noon on December 9, 2005.
Comments may be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. or mailed to Kim Coady at the Board’s offices. Submitted comments should follow the format outlined in the Comment Request Form available on the Board’s website.
The draft CSR and Scoping Document are available on the Board’s website, www.cnlopb.nl.ca or by contacting the Board’s office at C-NLOPB, 5th Floor – TD Place, 140 Water Street, St. John’s, NL, A1C 6H6, 709-778-1400.
