It was a big week for the offshore, with a new find announced in the Flemish Pass and industry heavyweights descending on St. John's for the annual Noia conference.

Noia president Bob Cadigan and conference chairman Mike Critch are the featured guests on this week's episode of On Point with David Cochrane.

They discuss the importance of keeping the momentum going in an industry that is key to the economic health of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Also on this week's show is NAPE president Carol Furlong.

Many public sector workers have been out of a contract for more than a year, and negotiations with the province have dragged on.

Furlong discusses the status of those talks.
