St. John’s — The Narrows

East Coast Canada

The East Coast of Canada plays an important and strategic role in Suncor Energy’s Exploration & Production business. Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, this aspect of our business focuses on high-volume production from four existing offshore fields, interests in future developments and expansions, and exploration drilling for new opportunities in this part of the Atlantic Ocean.


We currently have nearly 300 Suncor employees on the East Coast, and we operate the Terra Nova oil field located on the Grand Banks 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s, N.L. That operation can employ more than 1,200 people when both drilling and production operations are underway.

Suncor holds interests in all current major producing assets

As operator of the Terra Nova development, we are focused on running safe, reliable and environmentally responsible operations. As a joint venture partner, we hold a unique position as the only company on the East Coast with interests in all current major producing assets – Hebron, Hibernia, Terra Nova and White Rose – as well as the Hibernia South Extension and  White Rose Extensions. Some of these fields are currently under development.
