The UK continental shelf is subdivided into eight areas for the purposes of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA).
SEA is the process of appraisal through which environmental protection and sustainable development may be considered, and factored into national and local decisions regarding Government (and other) plans and programmes – such as oil and gas licensing rounds and other offshore energy developments, including renewables and gas and carbon dioxide storage.
