Polarcus shoots seismic over Drombeg (Ireland)

Providence Resources P.l.c. has announced that 3D seismic surveying operations have started on its Drombeg oil exploration prospect in the southern Porcupine Basin, offshore south-west Ireland.

The Drombeg prospect, which is situated in Frontier Exploration Licence (FEL) 2/14, is a significant Lower Cretaceous stratigraphic amplitude/AVO supported exploration target. The prospect is located in c. 2,500 metre water depth and is c. 220 kilometres off the west coast of Ireland. FEL 2/14 is operated by Providence (80%) on behalf of its partner Sosina Exploration (20%).

Providence has agreed to licence c. 1,100 km2 of 3D seismic data over Drombeg, which is being acquired by Polarcus MC Limited as part of a minimum c. 4,300 km2 non-exclusive multi-client survey. This is one of the largest ever 3D seismic surveys to have been acquired offshore Ireland and is utilising the M/V Polarcus Amani, which is an ultra-modern, super high ice-class, next generation seismic vessel that is one of the most advanced in the world.
