Chevron shelved plans in 2014 to drill a deepwater well in Canada's Beaufort Sea because of low oil prices.
Last fall Chevron Corp., the U.S.-based parent company, said its profits were down by 64 per cent in the third quarter of 2015 and that 6,000 to 7,000 jobs would be cut in the coming year.
Last June Chevron Canada, which has significant stakes in Newfoundland and Labrador's offshore oil industry, slashed its St. John's workforce by 60 per cent, or about 20 jobs.
