SHEDIAC, NB, Dec. 23, 2011 /CNW/ – Bernard Richard, who is undertaking an Independent Review of Corridor Resources’ Environmental Assessment documents on the proposed drilling of an exploratory well (EL 1105) in an area known as “Old Harry” in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, issued the following statement:

Today I received from the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board (C-NLOPB) Corridor Resources’ Environmental Assessment documents on the proposed drilling of an exploratory well on its exploration licence EL 1105, in the area known as “Old Harry” in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

In mid-January, 2012, I will formally launch my Independent Review, which includes facilitating the submission of comments from the general public on Corridor Resources’ Environmental Assessment documents and on the potential environmental effects of the proposed drilling of an exploratory well at Old Harry in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

During the launch, I will provide details on how the public can review the Environmental Assessment documents and provide me with input as to whether they feel additional information is required prior to commencing public consultations. As well, I will provide further details on the public consultation process that I will be undertaking in the five Eastern Canadian Provinces.
