Continental Shelf extends at least 200NM or 350 NM (in special circumstances) from the baselines. Coastal States have sovereign right to explore and exploit the natural resources in continental shelf. Beyond 200NM – if exploration/exploitation results in revenue generation a part of it has to be shared with the international community.
