SCHEDULE(Section 1)Offshore Area Adjacent to that of the Province of Nova Scotia

(All latitudes and longitudes are determined according to NAD 83)

As delimited in the award of the arbitration tribunal in conclusion of the second phase of arbitration between the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia on March 26, 2002, the line of the offshore area of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador that is adjacent to the offshore area of the province of Nova Scotia, as defined in section 2 of the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Resources Accord Implementation Act, is the following:

commencing at a point at 47°45′41.8″ north latitude and 60°24′12.5″ west longitude the line continues

southeasterly along a geodesic line to a point at 47°25′31.7″ north latitude and 59°43′37.1″ west longitude;

thence southeasterly along a geodesic line to a point at 46°54′48.9″ north latitude and 59°00′34.9″ west longitude;

thence southeasterly along a geodesic line to a point at 46°22′51.7″ north latitude and 58°01′20.0″ west longitude;

thence southeasterly along the following geodesic lines, but only as far as the point of intersection between one of those lines and the outer edge of the continental margin as determined by international law:

along a geodesic line from the previous point to a point at 46°17′25.1″ north latitude and 57°53′52.7″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 46°07′57.7″ north latitude and 57°44′05.1″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 45°41′31.4″ north latitude and 57°31′33.5″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 44°55′51.9″ north latitude and 57°10′34.0″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 43°14′13.9″ north latitude and 56°23′55.7″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 42°56′48.5″ north latitude and 56°16′52.1″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 42°03′46.3″ north latitude and 55°54′58.1″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 41°45′00.8″ north latitude and 55°47′31.6″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 41°42′24.7″ north latitude and 55°46′23.8″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 41°06′19.2″ north latitude and 55°36′10.9″ west longitude,

thence along a geodesic line to a point at 40°58′21.7″ north latitude and 55°34′23.3″ west longitude, and

thence along a geodesic line having an azimuth of 166°19′50″.
