Oil and gas concessions
"Oil and gas concessions,” refer to areas allocated by the government to companies who explore for and produce oil, natural gas and other hydrocarbons. The terminology for these areas varies from country to country. “Concession” is used as a general term for licenses, permits, or other contracts that confer rights to private companies to manage and extract oil and natural gas from public lands; terminology varies at the national level, however, and includes mining or mining “permits,” “tenures,” “licenses,” and other terms.
This data set displays oil and gas concessions as a single layer assembled by aggregating concession data for multiple countries. The data may come from government agencies, NGOs, or other organizations and varies by date and data sources. For more information on concession data for each country, please visit the Global Forest Watch Open Data Portal."
