Seismic Survey over Ireland's Drombeg Prospect Begins

Irish explorer Providence Resources reported Monday that 3D seismic survey operations have begun on its Drombeg oil prospect in the southern Porcupine Basin, offshore southwest Ireland.

Sitting in license FEL 2/14, the Lower Cretaceous Drombeg prospect is located in 8,200 feet of water and is 135 miles off the west coast of Ireland. The license is operated by Providence, which has an 80-percent stake in it. Sosina Exploration holds the remaining 20 percent.

Providence has agreed to acquire approximately 422 square miles of 3D seismic data over Drombeg. This data is being collected by Polarcus MC as part of a multi-client survey, which is one of the largest ever 3D seismic surveys to take place offshore Ireland.

Polarcus is using its M/V Polarcus Amani next-generation seismic vessel for the survey.
