Longitude and latitude reference
2 The bracketed portion of Schedule I to the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Resources Accord Implementation (Nova Scotia) Act after the title "LIMITS OF THE OFFSHORE AREA" is replaced by the following:
(Except where otherwise indicated, all latitudes and longitudes
referred to in this Schedule are determined according to NAD 27)
Amended description
3 The portion of the description of the outer limit of the offshore area set out in Schedule I to the Canada-Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Resources Accord Implementation (Nova Scotia) Act after the words "The outer limit of the offshore area is as follows": beginning with the fifteenth paragraph, which refers to the coordinates "latitude 47° 45' 40" and longitude 60° 24' 17"", and ending with the eighteenth paragraph, which refers to "an azimuth of 135°00' 00"", is replaced by the following:
thence northeasterly in a straight line to a point, delimited in the award of the arbitration tribunal in conclusion of the second phase of arbitration between the provinces of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador on March 26, 2002, at latitude 47° 45' 41.8" and longitude 60° 24' 12.5" (NAD 83);
thence, as delimited in the award of March 26, 2002, southeasterly along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 47° 25' 31.7" and longitude 59° 43' 37.1" (NAD 83);
thence, as delimited in the award of March 26, 2002, southeasterly along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 46° 54' 48.9" and longitude 59° 00' 34.9" (NAD 83);
thence, as delimited in the award of March 26, 2002, southeasterly along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 46° 22' 51.7" and longitude 58° 01' 20.0" (NAD 83);
thence, as delimited in the award of March 26, 2002, 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:

thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 46° 07' 57.7" and longitude 57° 44' 05.1" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 45° 41' 31.4" and longitude 57° 31' 33.5" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 44° 55' 51.9" and longitude 57° 10' 34.0" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 43° 14' 13.9" and longitude 56° 23' 55.7" (NAD 83),

thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 42° 03' 46.3" and longitude 55° 54' 58.1" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 41° 45' 00.8" and longitude 55° 47' 31.6" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 41° 42' 24.7" and longitude 55° 46' 23.8" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 41° 06' 19.2" and longitude 55° 36' 10.9" (NAD 83),
thence along a geodesic line to a point at latitude 40° 58' 21.7" and longitude 55° 34' 23.3" (NAD 83),
