Further to the west is PEDL181. With phase 1 work obligations fulfilled by the drilling of the Kiln Lane well in 2015, Europa has entered into the second phase of the licence.

Following analysis of seismic and geological data, together with the results of the Kiln Lane well, Europa elected to retain an area of 160km2 in the southeast of the licence and relinquish the remaining 380km2. The retained area provides exposure to the conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon potential of the Humber basin. It has technical synergy with the adjacent licence PEDL334, which was awarded to an Egdon led group in the 14th Round for the purpose of conventional and unconventional exploration.
