The Hebron Project has a vendor database that is used to identify possible suppliers and contractors to participate in the project. Suppliers and contractors are encouraged to register.

ExxonMobil Canada Properties, operator of the Hebron Project, will use the database beyond development/construction, into the operations phase of the project. We also see value in expanding use of the database to the Hibernia and Hibernia Southern Extension projects, as well as project co-venturers and co-owners should they request information. The increased visibility to three major projects and other noted industry participants may be of value to your organization as it has the potential to increase future procurement opportunities.

DISCLAIMER: By registering your company in the vendor database, you are consenting to making your information available to the parties noted above in addition to the Hebron Project.

NOTE: Registration in the database does not imply that a supplier or contractor is approved as a qualified supplier, nor does it indicate that a supplier or contractor is included on any tender or bid list for the supply of goods or services for which it has registered.
