Geoscience Research

In an effort to bridge the gap between government, academia and industry, and to encourage growth back into our offshore oil and gas development, the Province of Nova Scotia felt that there was a need to gain a better understanding of Nova Scotia’s petroleum geology through offshore energy research.

OERA is committed to enhancing petroleum exploration and development in offshore Nova Scotia. A key component of this is building geoscience knowledge about Nova Scotia’s offshore oil and gas potential.
OERA awarded funding to carry out geoscience research and archive 2-D and 3-D Seismic Datasets.
