Canadian Offshore Resources Exposition

Halifax, Nova Scotia—October 1-3 This year's Fifth Annual Canadian Offshore Resources Exposition and Conference (CORE) is again scheduled for Halifax, Nova Scotia, October 1-3. The exposition will be held at the Port of Halifax Ocean Terminals and the conference at the Halifax World Trade Centre.

First organized in 1981, CORE has become Canada's leading annual event devoted exclusively to the offshore oil and gas exploration, drilling, and production industry.

At the 1984 event, 620 firms from 18 countries exhibited their products and services, making it one of the biggest shows of its kind in Canada.

The CORE exposition features domestic and international exhibits, and the business transacted at the show is one of the major attractions.

With the ever-increasing activity in offshore exploration and development in Atlantic Canada, the Beaufort Sea, and the Arctic (where the environment is unique to other parts of the world), there are technical problems that can only be solved through constant updating of knowledge and experience. CORE was established to provide a forum where this knowledge could be disseminated through the proper channels.

This year CORE is sponsored by: Atlantic Provinces Economic council; Canadian Institute of Mining; Canadian Ocean Industries Association; Canadian Petroleum Offshore Operators Division; Cape Breton Offshore Trade Association; Halifax Board of Trade; Newfoundland Ocean Industries Association; Offshore Trade Association of Nova Scotia; and Oilweek Magazine. It is produced and managed by Industrial Trade Shows Inc. of Toronto.

The overall theme of this year's Conference is "Development of Canadian Oil & Gas Frontiers." It will be held in three sections—in the morning and afternoon of October 1 and in the morning on October 2.

Luncheon speaker of October 1 will be Jack A. McLeod, president and chief executive officer of Shell Canada. The luncheon gathering on October 2 will be addressed by The Honorable Pat Carney, Minister of Mines & Energy, Government of Canada.

CORE attempts to provide the visitor to the Conference with a roster of experts and authoritative speakers from both Canada and the international community, who are chosen to discuss the many aspects of the search and exploitation of oil and gas resources in waters that are often environmentally hostile.
