The Hibernia Reservoir

Discovered in 1979, the Hibernia oil field is located 315 km east southeast of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, in 80 metres of water. The field is significant by any standards. For example, it is the fifth largest field ever discovered in Canada.
  • The field is found within the Jeanne d'Arc Basin which underlies the northeast portion of the Grand Banks.
  • It consists of two principal reservoirs of early Cretaceous age - the Hibernia and Ben Nevis-Avalon reservoirs - located at average depths of 3,700 and 2,400 metres respectively.
