Newfoundland Transshipment Limited, Whiffen Head

Newfoundland Transshipment Limited (NTL) was formed in 1996 to oversee the construction and operation of a major marine transshipment facility located in Whiffen Head, Placentia Bay.

Construction of the Terminal was completed in the fall of 1998 and the operation has been ongoing since that time. The NTL facility was specifically designed to handle crude oil production from the oil fields located offshore NL. The Terminal received its first production from the Hibernia field in October 1998.
