In December, the Johnson GEO CENTRE announced they received a $2.2M contribution from the Hebron Project, made in recognition of Hebron’s first year of operations.

The funds will be used to update and expand the ExxonMobil Oil and Gas Gallery, an exhibit designed to educate visitors about the oil and gas industry in the province, and will be expected to open in 2020. These upgrades include larger gallery space, revitalized exhibits, and the installation of an interactive drilling simulator that will provide a virtual reality experience of Hebron platform drilling operations.

“We hope it inspires our young people to develop their talents and pursue careers in the industry,” said ExxonMobil Canada president Carman Mullins.

The funds come specifically from ExxonMobil Canada Properties and the Hebron Project Employers’ Association.
