An ad from Talon Energy in last week's edition of the Gulf News says that company and Fleetway Facility Services have been awarded a major subsea fabrication project related to Husky Energy's White Rose Extension.

The ad says the companies will use the former ASIL building.

Work to repair and upgrade the building has been going on for months, sparking rumours about potential jobs for the area.

A spokeswoman from Talon Energy said she could not elaborate on any of the details in the ad.

The Talon Energy advertisement is for a job fair to be held at the Bruce II Sports Centre Nov. 13-14. The company is looking for various welders, electricians, inspectors and administrators, among other positions.

    What wonderful news! That a remote little outpost in non-Avalon Newfoundland seems to have a new tenant for an old building that may be the site of some industrial activity, and may therefore, at some point, hire people to do something. All this is almost too much to digest, a scant 15 years into our whole oil production era. It's all (possibly) happening too fast! Burn your boats!
