Consultation description

The Appropriate Assessment (AA) covering the Blocks applied for in the 30th Seaward Licensing Round has now been issued for a 6-week period of public consultation.

Background

Following the announcement of the 30th Seaward Licensing Round by the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA), an initial screening assessment (including consultation with the statutory agencies/bodies) of the 821 Blocks offered was published in February 2018. The screening identified 304 whole or part Blocks as requiring further assessment (AA) prior to the OGA making a decision on whether to grant licences, should they be applied for.

Following the closing date for 30th Seaward Licensing Round applications, those Blocks identified as requiring further assessment (AA) were reconsidered against the list of actual applications. It was concluded that further assessment (AA) was required for 61 of the Blocks applied for. Due to the wide distribution of these Blocks in the UK Continental Shelf, the AAs are contained in four regional reports.

  • Central North Sea
  • West of Shetland
