Discovered in 1981, the Hebron project consists of three fields: the Hebron field, the West Ben Nevis field and the Ben Nevis field. The proposed Hebron project in the Jeanne d'Arc basin has been estimated to contain 566 million barrels of oil. According to the project description filed with the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Petroleum Board, Hebron should be producing its first oil before the end of 2017 using a gravity base structure production platform.

For estimates of recoverable oil and gas reserves and resources and production statistics please see the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board website.
