Detail of outcome
The Appropriate Assessments of blocks applied for in the 28th Offshore Oil and Gas Licensing Round have been issued.
These documents were revised as appropriate in light of comments received during the public consultation which ended on the 4th May 2015. Further assessment will be made as necessary at the project specific level.
The Appropriate Assessments of Blocks applied for in the 28th Offshore Oil and Gas Licensing Round have now been issued for public consultation. An initial screening assessment (including consultation with the statutory agencies/bodies) was published in October 2014, and identified a number of whole or part Blocks as requiring further assessment prior to decisions on whether to grant licences under the 28th Round. Because of the wide distribution of these Blocks around the UKCS, the Appropriate Assessments (AA) of the Blocks are contained in five regional reports listed below:
- Southern North Sea
- Moray Firth
- Northern and Central North Sea
- West of Shetland
- Irish Sea and St George’s Channel
