Detail of outcome
An initial screening assessment (including consultation with the statutory agencies/bodies) was published on 11th November 2008 and identified a number of whole or part Blocks as requiring further assessment prior to decisions on whether to grant licences under the 25th Round. Because of the wide distribution of these Blocks around the UKCS, the Appropriate Assessments (AA) in respect of each potential licence award are contained in four regional reports.
- Southern Irish Sea
- Outer Moray Firth
- Southern North Sea
- West of Orkney and Wyville Thomson Ridge/Darwin Mounds area
The Appropriate Assessments of blocks applied for in the 25th Offshore Oil and Gas Licensing Round were revised as appropriate in light of comments received during the public consultation. Further assessment will be made as necessary at the project specific level.
