Global Block Coverage, Current Bid Rounds, and Advisers

Lynx maintains an expansive database of hydrocarbon/petroleum exploration licensing rounds and blocks covering prospective areas around the globe. We use these data in our service work and in development of our GIS Exploration Advisers.

This map shows current licensing rounds with our regional Lynx Exploration Advisers and selected block coverage. The Lynx Exploration Advisers provide an ideal introduction to the petroleum geology and exploration potential of a region for New Ventures - contact us to find out more.

You can download shapefiles of the blocks on offer for many areas by clicking on blocks on the map.
