The Gas Importation and Storage Zone and the Renewable Energy Zone generally follow the EEZ boundary. Under treaties with Denmark relating to the Faroe Islands the area to the north of the line specified (i.e between the EEZ and the GISZ and REZ) can only be utilised for the purposes of renewable energy and gas storage with the prior consent of Denmark.
