Marine Notice: Well Site Surveys On Corrib Gas Field

#MarineNotice - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport advises that the survey vessel MV Fugro Searcher will commence well site survey work for Shell E&P Ireland Limited on the Corrib Gas Field, off the coast of Co Mayo, around mid February 2014.

The vessel is expected to be on location for a period of approximately five days, weather permitting. The area to be surveyed is set out in the table and map included in Marine Notice No 17 of 2014, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.

The survey vessel has the Call Sign 3EUY6 and will be listening on VHF Channel 16 throughout the project.

All mariners are also reminded of the Safety Zone that is in place around the Corrib Gas Field development, referred to in Marine Notice No 21 of 2006, as well as their responsibilities under the International Collision Regulations (Marine Notice No 17 of 2007 gives general advice in relation to the activities of vessels engaged in survey work for hydrographic, seismic, fishing research and underwater operations).

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

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading 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. 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.
