Five are in the southern gas basin, and comprise:
- P2567, blocks 43/11 and 43/12, including the Cadence prospect. Both are north of the Spirit Energy-operated Pegasus and Andromeda discoveries.
- P2558, two-part blocks, 41/5b and 42/1b, awarded jointly with Shell and adjacent to their existing Pensacola license (P2252). The area has been largely imaged on the new Bluewater 3D survey shot by Deltic/Shell last year and contains a potential northern extension of the Pensacola prospect.
- P2560, P2561, P2562 over a little explored area south of the Breagh gas field.
In the UK central sector, Deltic was awarded P2542, which contains two Jurassic Fulmar sandstone prospects thought to have upside potential. Further work will be undertaken during the initial license period to mature these prospects.
