Continuing Oversight of Province’s Investment

Today, the Minister of Natural Resources commented on the oversight committee’s report of the Muskrat Falls Project for the period ended August 2015.

“The last report from the committee highlighted several risks to the project’s budget and schedule. The committee has continued to carefully monitor these risks and has been receiving regular updates on the project from Nalcor. Since then, Nalcor has finalized the costs of the remaining major contracts and identified additional cost pressures. At this time, the impact on the project’s schedule is still being assessed.”
– The Honourable Derrick Dalley, Minister of Natural Resources
