Providence Kicks Off Seismic Ops Offshore Ireland

Providence has kicked off a 3D seismic acquisition program in the north Celtic Sea, offshore Ireland. The survey forms part of the planned pre-development drilling program on the Barryroe oil discovery and is due for completion in two weeks, said the company.

Polarcus Limited has supplied a vessel for the seismic survey and to assist in the pre-development drilling program designed to advance Barryroe to first oil. Development drilling on Barryroe will commence later this summer using the GSF Artic III semisub.

The consortium believes that modern 3D seismic data coupled with modern well completions will help unlock the value of Barryroe. Barryroe is located in permit SEL 2/07 offshore Ireland. Providence operates Barryroe (50%) with partners San Leon Energy (30%) and Lansdowne Oil & Gas (20%).
