UK to Hold 25th Licensing Round in January 2008

BERR is currently undertaking a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)7 of areas of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS) which will form the basis for those areas to be offered for oil and gas licensing in the 25th Offshore Round.

It is the Department's intention to publish full information about the Licensing Round in the Official Journal of the European Union, and BERR's website, in late January 2008 with a deadline for application 90 days later in late April.

This is however subject to progress on the SEA and Ministerial Approval.
