St. John’s is the provincial capital of Newfoundland, Canada and is located on the eastern tip of the Avalon Peninsula on the island of Newfoundland. Throughout its history, St. John’s fortunes have been tied to the ocean. In the past, these riches took the form of abundant fishing and trade. Today, the port’s economic future seems assured as offshore oil and gas exploration expands in the Grand Banks and the Atlantic Margin reservoirs. The port at St. John’s has emerged as the primary business center for Canada’s east coast oil exploration, development and production.
