Marine Notice: Well Inspections and Maintenance on the Corrib Gas Field

#MarineNotice - The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has been advised that the survey vessel the Normand Subsea (Call Sign: 2CQP8) will commence well works on the Corrib Gas Field, off the coast of Co Mayo, in early October 2013. The works will include replacement of subsea control modules and clamp system replacement.

The vessel, which is expected to be on location for a period of approximately 3 weeks, will be listening on VHF Channel 16 throughout the project. This Marine Notice will be updated if there are any significant changes to either the location or duration of the project.

All Mariners are reminded of the Safety Zone that is in place around the Corrib Gas Field development, referred to in Marine Notice No. 21 of 2006. The co-ordinates of the safety zone are:

Latitude (N)

Longitude (W)

54° 20’ 20.170”

011° 03’ 26.819”

54° 19’ 09.119”

011° 02’ 54.963”

54° 20’ 51.418”

011° 02’ 15.465”

54° 19’ 11.136”

011° 04’ 15.419”

 

All vessels, particularly those engaged in fishing, are requested to give the Normand Subsea a wide berth of at least 500 metres and to keep a sharp lookout in the relevant areas.

All vessels are required to comply fully with the International Regulations for the Prevention of Collisions at Sea and to manoeuvre their vessels accordingly. The attention of all is drawn to Marine Notice No. 17 of 2007, which gives general advice in relation to the activities of vessels engaged in survey work for hydrographic, seismic, fishing research and underwater operations.
