The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLPOB) has approved a development plan amendment (DPA) for ExxonMobil's Hebron field project. The decision has also been ratified by the federal and Newfoundland and Labrador governments.

With this approval, ExxonMobil and its partners in the Hebron project are allowed to move on with the development of sands located in the Jeanne d'Arc Formation, which were not covered by the original development plan.

This additional development will be carried out with existing workforce and facilities in Hebron while also taking into account the field's current drilling and production levels.
