#MarineNotice - Marine Notice No 9 of 2013 advise of preparatory works for the installation of an offshore umbilical at the Corrib Gas Field development off Co Mayo.

Works are set to commence in early March along the route of the existing Corrib offshore gas pipeline with a route survey and pre-cut trenching by the Normand Ranger (Call sign LAMT).

A trench will be constructed from the subsea facilities and well in the Corrib Gas Field to approximately 16km offshore using a subsea plough pulled by the trenching support vessel.

This plough could trail as far as 1,700m behind the support vessel, and so all vessels in the vicinity are requested to keep a wide berth clear of the works. All vessel involved in the operations will be listening on VHF Channel 16 throughout the project.

Full details including relevant co-ordinates are included in the Marine Notice, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.
