Geographic Focus
Eykon Energy's focus is on the Arctic, along with the North Atlantic. That includes the Dreki Area on the Jan Mayen Ridge micro-continent, where the company has applied in the second licensing round along with CNOOC.
On October 3rd 2011 the National Energy Authority of Iceland (Orkustofnun) announced the second licensing round for hydrocarbon exploration on the Icelandic continental shelf - the Dreki area. Eykon Energy submitted its application in March 2012. Eykon Energy was at that time not awarded a license, but given an extension for a fixed period of time to bring in a partner to take on oil exploration in the Dreki Area.
After few months of negotiations with various companies, Eykon and China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC) came to an agreement. As of July 2013, the National Energy Authority of Iceland is evaluating the application submitted by Eykon and CNOOC.
