The continental shelf boundary between Italy and Spain in the western Mediterranean Sea was established through a bilateral agreement that was reached in 1974. The boundary was constructed using the equidistance methodology drawn between coastal basepoints on Italy’s Sardinia Island and Spain’s Menorca Island. The line consists of nine boundary segments connecting ten equidistance turning points, which were identified as points A–L. From the boundary’s origin in the north at Point A, it extends for 137 nautical miles and continues in a southerly direction until reaching its termination at Point L.
