Details

The main focus of this Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA 6) is the UK Department of Trade and Industry’s (DTI) draft plan for a 24th offshore oil and gas licensing round to offer blocks for oil and gas licensing in parts of the Irish Sea. In addition, as part of SEA 6, an assessment is made of the implications of the proposed re-offer during the same licensing round, of currently unlicensed blocks in the areas covered by earlier offshore oil and gas SEAs.

This SEA considers the environmental implications of this proposed draft plan and the potential exploration, development and production activities which could result from its implementation.
