    NOIA members gathered today at the Annual General Meeting 2020 in St. John’s, Newfoundland. New directors were voted in and will serve a two-year term of a voluntary contribution to NOIA and it’ members.

    Highlights of the meeting included the highest level of drilling in history, with upwards of 100 exploratory wells to be drilled over the coming decade with high prospects for new oil finds. Advocacy for speedy regulatory processes, supply chain opportunity improvement, and other NOIA support services were also highlighted. Financially NOIA remains profitable and robust as an organization and pledges to support members of the oil and gas industry in new and creative ways.
