Details are emerging about what is happening at the former ASIL Building near the Port aux Basques ferry terminal.

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.
