Scotland’s seabed manager recently announced the new leasing round shortly after the Scottish Government opened consultation regarding a new Sectoral Marine Plan for Offshore Wind for Innovation and Targeted Oil and Gas Decarbonisation (INTOG). The consultation is assembling input on the new planning process which will inform the areas to be made available for seabed leases.

Crown Estate reported that after the adoption of the INTOG Offshore Wind Sectoral Marine Plan by the Scottish Government, the final Option Agreements with applicants granted seabed rights under this new auction would be put in place.

Scott Robertson, Oil and Gas Authority Director of Operations, said, “Power generation accounts for around two thirds of oil and gas production emissions. The electrification of oil and gas installations is vital if the industry is going to meet its 2027 and 2030 decarbonisation targets agreed in the North Sea Transition Deal.”
