It has been revealed today that plans are in place for a joint licensing round to be launched between the Faroe Islands and the UK North Sea.
The “ground-breaking” collaboration would see blocks come available for exploration in waters on the UK Atlantic Margin, between west of Shetland and the Faroes.
It would see the fifth Faroese Licensing Round take place alongside the UK’s 32nd round, due to begin in June and close in November.
The Faroes Oil Industry Group said it will create a “whole new expanded oil province which subsumes and supersedes West of Shetland”.
In 2014 Oil and Gas People conducted a study into the potential the Atlantic Margin holds for Oil Discoveries. Our investigation included interviews with industry experts and collated seismic and expert evidence from a range of independent sources such as the British Geological Survey, DECC (the regulator at the time), oil and gas companies, the Institute of Petroleum Engineering and the Energy Institute.

Two teenage YouTubers were the subject of concern this week after they announced they were expecting a baby and had gotten "married" in Las Vegas. After dragging their followers through a four-part, monetized series, they revealed that it was just a "prank" and issued a very YouTuber non-apology for coming off as insensitive.
Danielle Cohn, who goes by Dani, is 15 years old. Her boyfriend and fellow influencer, Mikey Tua, is 16. After dropping cryptic hints throughout the weekend, Mikey posted a hidden camera video of the couple telling their families that Dani was pregnant.
They raised eyebrows when the two posted a later video of their "wedding" in Las Vegas — which Dani's mother clarified in a statement to BuzzFeed as only the two making a "promise" since Dani is too young to be legally married, even with parental consent. In the third installment, they visited a questionable doctor's office for an "ultrasound" to find out the sex of the hypothetical baby and listen to Mikey's father lecture them on responsibilities.

Nothing goes together like "fact checking" and "Tucker Carlson," right?
Facebook has a new fact-checking partner, Axios first reported Thursday: CheckYourFact.com, the fact-checking arm of The Daily Caller, a right-wing website founded by conspiracy theorist peddler Tucker Carlson.
CheckYourFact.com describes itself as "editorially independent" from The Daily Caller. Its funding comes from The Daily Caller's operating budget, ad revenue, and from a grant that's ultimately funded by conservative political groups, according to Media Matters, a watchdog organization of conservative media.

Instagram might be changing up one of the most fundamental parts of its service: likes.
New screenshots suggest the company is testing a way to hide like counts in Instagram posts. Images uncovered by researcher Jane Manchun Wong reveal Instagram feed posts that no longer show exact like counts. Instead, you see that a post was liked by a few named handles "and others."
"We want your followers to focus on what you share, not how many likes your posts get," Instagram says in an in-app message explaining the change. "During this test, only the person who shared a post will see the total number of likes it gets." Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Instagram, Tech, and Social Media Companies
