The maps, produced by Lloyds Register, are intended to lower the barriers to oil and gas exploration and were a key part of the Wood Review, a government-backed initiative to maximise the economic recovery of oil and gas from the Ukcs.
The final geographic series covers the West of Shetlands, Rockall Trough, Irish Sea and Cardigan Bay. A single merged set of maps and databases for the whole of the UKCS is now available, combining each of the individual geographic areas, published on a rolling basis throughout the duration of the project.
Lloyd’s Register project manager Henk Kombrink said that producing a set of consistent geological maps and datasets for the entire UKCS over three years had been a big challenge but "thanks to the high level of collaboration with both the OGA and many third parties, the team at Lloyd’s Register were able to successfully deliver the project.”
