In 1981, an agreement was reached between the governments of Iceland and Norway delimiting the continental shelf between Iceland and the Norwegian island Jan Mayen. The agreement also defined a subsea area to be explored jointly by the two nations. This area covers a total of about 45 470 km², of which 32 750 km² is in the Norwegian sector.
