Awards in predefined areas 2006 (APA 2006) - Announcement

The predefined areas 2006 include blocks in the North Sea, Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea. The areas in the North Sea and the Norwegian Sea are expanded compared to APA 2005. Blocks in the predefined areas relinquished in the application period will automatically be included. The application deadline is 29th September 2006 at 1200 hrs and awards will be during December.



In the APA 2006 companies can submit applications for all blocks or parts of blocks within the predefined areas not licensed at the application deadline. Hence areas relinquished prior to September 29th are announced areas at the time of relinquishment. Updated maps showing these blocks are available at the NPD's Fact Maps.
