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.
