The Canada-Newfoundland Offshore Petroleum Board (CNLOPB) has announced the sale of seven parcels, covering roughly 4.45 million acres, to be offered on 1 November 2012.
The parcels are split into two separate sale areas; NL12-01 and NL12-02.
The minimum acceptable bid for each available tract within any of the sale areas is CAD 1 million. Each exploration licence awarded will carry a term of nine years, divided into two periods. Period I will last for six years from the effective date and requires the drilling of at least one well in order for the licence to be extended into Period II.
