A Bay of Opportunity

Conception Bay South is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Canada.  Located on the edge of the North Atlantic, close to offshore developments and land blocks, major amenities and infrastructure, the Town and its expansive bay are perfectly positioned to support and foster large industry growth.

Conception Bay South offers urban living within a rural setting. The Town’s efficient transportation network means easy access to the province’s capital city, an International airport and world-class health care facilities.

This is where opportunity lives, and your North American expansion begins.

The Centre of Industry and Development

On the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, just fifteen minutes from downtown St. John’s, the Town of Conception Bay South is nestled around a sheltered, expansive bay.  We are ideally located to service oil and gas industry in the Orphan Basin, Flemish Pass, and Labrador Sea, supporting exploration and drilling, construction and operations.

With new, expanding industrial lands, growing oil and gas infrastructure and access to major oil and gas sites via water and land routes, the Town of Conception Bay South is the perfect location for establishing or expanding operations. Whether supporting large oil and gas land-based industry or powering platforms from shore, Conception Bay’s proximity to offshore lands, the north deep-water channel, and renewable power from Soldier’s Pond HVDC substation means a clean energy supply is near at hand.

The large bay and broad footprint gives plenty of access along the northwest side, and significant industrial potential along the southeast, all supported by a multi-highway system for safe and convenient transport. Conception Bay also offers shelter from the harsh North Atlantic, and favorable weather to protect your people and assets from powerful Nor’Easters.  With ample waterways and coastline, the Bay is home to multiple industries, including oil and gas, mining, tourism, and fish harvesting.

The Long Pond Port is strategically located to provide efficient and comprehensive support to offshore developments, while also reducing carbon emissions. The marine base is located in the expansive, sheltered bay with favourable weather conditions, and has comprehensive access by ocean, ground and air. It is conveniently just minutes from industrial parks via the modern multi-highway system and is designed for efficient operations, resulting in reduced operating risk, less standby time and more.
