Report summary

On 11 February 2016 the Irish Minister of State awarded 14 licences in the first phase of the 2015 Atlantic Margin licensing round. Among the awardees are four majors: Eni ExxonMobil Statoil and BP. The licences have been awarded in the Porcupine Basin which is considered the most prospective of Ireland's Atlantic Margin basins. This is a great result for the Irish upstream sector and the awardees can bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the frontier deepwater region. Work commitments will include the acquisition of new seismic data but no exploration wells at this stage. A second phase of awards will be announced in May 2016 which we expect to be predominately in the Rockall and Slyne Basins.
