Price: CDN$34.95

The topic of the Hibernia Project has spurred intense debate in local and national media, on political circles, and around kitchen tables. John Crosbie, a steadfast supporter of the enterprise, maintained at the 11th Interenational Offshore Petroleum Conference at St. John's in 1995, "It is up to us as Newfoundlanders to show we did not waste the opportunity provided for us. As Sophocles said in 408 B.C., 'Opportunity has power over all things.' Our opportunity is Hibernia. "The official Hibernia book is a record of the highly commendable effort by so many groups and individuals, from geophysicists and provincial politicians to Hibernia management, staff and workers, to fully realize that opportunity. A generous selection of impressive photos by Ned Pratt and Greg Locke will record many facets of the undertaking: faces and feats, constructin progress and milestones at the Bull Arm Site.

This pictorial array will be complemented by engaging text highlighting the unique features of the Hibernia Offshore Oil Production Platform, such as the massive concrete ice wall, and considering the place of the Hibernia Project within the historical context of Newfoundland, complete with insights offered by seasoned industry professionals and enthusiastic young Hibernia workers. These varied elements will combine the record of history in the making, a quality keepsake chronicling the inception and development of a great enterprise fuelled by a remarkable blend of perserverance and skill.
