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.

Almost every advert in the world is, to some extent, a little bit unbelievable.
It could be that the people in the ad are smiling a little too much, or that everything just looks that tiny bit too perfect.
Or it could be that the accessories the company in question has chosen to jazz up their product are so ridiculous that the whole thing falls apart on closer inspection.
Enter bath trays. As pianist Sharon Su perfectly illustrated in a Twitter thread this weekend, they may be the worst offenders of all.
Here's Su's thread, in all its glory. Read more...More about Bath, Culture, and Web Culture
If you've ever had to pretend to have a boyfriend or husband to get out of an uncomfortable or threatening situation, then you'll know that it can be a terrifying and isolating experience.
But, you're not alone and these responses to Jameela Jamil's tweets are proof of that.
The star of The Good Place tweeted that she was shopping with a friend when a man made advances at her. She told him she had a boyfriend and thanked him, but the situation quickly escalated into one of harassment.
Was out at the shops with my friend. Man ogles me. Man then approaches me to give me his number. I explain I have a boyfriend but thank him for the offer. Man then threatens my career, saying I better remember that I rejected him. And then Shouts at me that I’m low class... 🤷🏽♀️

You know Mean Tweets? Well, this is sort of the opposite.
In the compilation above from The Graham Norton Show, the likes of Chris Pine and Matt Damon are confronted with a range of inventively thirsty tweets about them — from Pine's full-frontal nude scene in Outlaw King to Matt Damon's temporary ponytail (to which there were many, many creative responses).
It's not all thirsty stuff, either — there are some reactions to meeting Taylor Swift, for instance, that are simply excitable in the extreme, as well as a selection of the most brutal James Blunt comebacks.
But mostly it's the thirsty stuff. Read more...More about Taylor Swift, Matt Damon, Graham Norton, The Graham Norton Show, and Chris Pine
March Mindfulness is our new series that examines the explosive growth in mindfulness and meditation technology — culminating in Mashable's groundbreaking competitive meditation bracket contest. Because March shouldn't be all madness.
The Sunday Scaries suck, but Mondays often suck more. After a weekend of friends, family, and ideally, naps, you're thrusted into deadlines, meetings, and spreadsheets. That's one way to look at it, at least; another is to think of Mondays as a day to start fresh.
The DeStress Monday initiative uses that mentality to encourage users to press the refresh button with simple tools that will help them unwind every week. In doing so, they hope to help people start their Mondays in a positive way and then reduce stress throughout the rest of the week.
