15/02/2013 The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy has 15 February 2013 announced the APA 2013, comprising the predefined areas with blocks in the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea.
The application deadline for APA 2013 is 12:00 a.m. on Wednesday 11 September 2013. The awards are planned to be made in the first quarter of 2014.
The predefined areas (APA boxes) have been extended with more blocks since APA 2012. The new areas are in the Norwegian Sea. Applications can be made for any blocks or parts of blocks within the predefined areas which are not already included in a licence at the closing date for application. This entails that acreage which is relinquished in the application period is regarded as announced at the time of governmental approved relinquishment. The acreage will be included consecutively in the predefined areas on NPD's interactive fact maps.
