Licences and Maps

Map showing Ireland and offshore authorisations

Quarterly Acreage Reports

Each quarter we publish an Acreage Report which sets out the position of each authorisation in offshore and onshore Ireland. Along with this report a Concession Map is published to show where each authorisation can be found.

The report details:

  • The type of authorisation held
  • The period it is licenced for
  • The blocks contained in the authorisation
  • The area of the authorisation
  • The participants in the authorisation and the percentage of interest they hold.
