#MarineNotice - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) advises that an environmental survey will take place in the vicinity of the Corrib Gas Field manifold and the Corrib treated surface water outfall diffuser.
These works, which include a post-well environmental survey conducted in the area of the 18/20-5(P6) well, were scheduled to commence by today (Friday 26 September) and are expected to last about a week, weather permitting. The vessel to be used is the Granuaile (Callsign EIPT).
Water and sediments samples will be collected from a series of locations adjacent to the Corrib field (SW3) and the water outfall diffuser (SW1) using a grab sampler. All locations at SW3 are within a 2.5km radius of the manifold.
With the exception of a sample control site located approximately 10km to the south-west, all locations at SW1 are within 4km of the diffuser. Cameras mounted on ROVs will take visual images of the seabed at each sample location.
