Continued high levels of interest in UKCS acreage despite an uncertain future

Report summary

Levels of interest in offshore acreage on the UK continental shelf remain high as demonstrated by the 28th UK Offshore Licensing Round. Offers of 132 licences covering 271 blocks were making this round relatively successful. However, only six wells have been committed thus far putting downward pressure on the outlook for E&A.
