The vice-president of North American exploration for Statoil says the remote Bay du Nord site off Newfoundland faces "harsh realities" on a long path to development. Jez Averty (AH-ver-tee) says much has changed since oil prices crashed, although the company remains optimistic about the Flemish Pass.
