#MarineNotice - Nexen Petroleum Ltd advises that it will conduct a 2D seismic survey in the Southern Porcupine Basin off the South West Coast of Ireland this week.
The survey will commence on Wednesday 12 July and will last approximately six operational days, depending on weather conditions.
The aim of the proposed ‘Iolar’ geophysical survey is to accurately determine water depths, the nature of the seabed material and, locate and identify any seabed and sub-seabed features.
The vessel involved will be the M/V Fugro Venturer (Callsign C6CG3).
As reported earlier today on Afloat.ie, another seismic survey is scheduled to begin this week some 210nm off Bull Rock.
Providence Resources is also currently drilling an exploration well at its prospect in the Southern Porcupine Basin.
