Marine Notice: Corrib Gas Pipeline Works From Corrib Field To Broadhaven Bay

#MarineNotice - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) advises of rock placement on the newly installed P3/P6 flowlines at the Corrib gas field, and remedial rock placement on the 20” gas pipeline and control umbilical.

The work will be undertaken at the Corrib field location and along the pipeline corridor to the landfall at Broadhaven Bay. The vessel to be used will be the Nordnes (Callsign PHOG).

Work on the P3 and P6 flowline rock placement will all take place within the 500m Safety Zone surrounding the Corrib subsea facilities. Meanwhile, the pipeline and umbilical remedial rock placement will be undertaken from the Corrib offshore field location to landfall at Glengad, Co Mayo.

The P3/P6 rock placement works will commence tomorrow, Sunday 19 October at the Corrib Field. Following that, the remedial rock placement will be undertaken on the pipeline and umbilical. The work will be completed by early November 2014.

Full details of co-ordinates for the relevant work areas are included in Marine Notice No 59 of 2014, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.

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.
