#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:
