The East Coast of Canada plays an important and strategic role in Suncor Energy’s Exploration & Production business. Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, this aspect of our business focuses on high-volume production from three existing fields, interests in future developments and expansions, and exploration drilling for new opportunities.
We currently have more than 300 Suncor employees on the East Coast, and we oversee the operation of the Terra Nova oil field located 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s, N.L. That operation can employ as many as 1,200 people when both drilling and production operations are underway. Our offices are located in the heart of downtown, overlooking St. John’s harbour.
As operator of the Terra Nova development, we are focused on running safe, reliable and environmentally responsible operations. As a joint venture partner, we hold a unique position as the only company on the East Coast with interests in all current producing fields — Hibernia, Terra Nova and White Rose — as well as the Hibernia South Extension, White Rose Extensions and the Hebron field. Some of these fields are currently under development.Learn more about our assets
