Does UKCS refer to both onshore and offshore or offshore only?

I know we don't have many onshore wells in the UK, however, does UKCS refer to both onshore and offshore or offshore only?

Hi Ken,
UKCS does only refer to the ofshore extent of UK waters.  However, in reply to your comment "we don't have many onshore wells", there have been approximately 2100 wells drilled onshore.  Granted a lot of them have been abandoned.
