Providence Awarded Foreshore Licence for Dublin Bay Study

#dalkey island – Providence are to procure a site survey vessel and drilling unit to drill at the Dalkey Island prospect following an announcement this morning that the Irish listed exploration company has been been awarded a foreshore licence.

As previously reported on afloat.ie in February Environment Minister Phil Hogan rejected a call by Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore and others for a public inquiry into Providence Resources foreshore licence application to survey the site 6 kilometres off the bay shoreline.

The licence for an area in the Kish bank basin allows the company to carry out a 2D seismic study, a well site survey and drill an exploration well on the prospect.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
