Lineage The production licenses were granted in 1998 through competitive licence, while between 2000 and 2005 were granted in open door round by the Falkland Islands Government. Licence areas have been subject to relinquishments since. The shape of the licence areas and relinquishments is partly regulated by Offshore Petroleum (licensing) regulations 1995 and 2000, and subsequent amendments.
