Ireland’s Providence Resources announced Monday that 3D seismic survey operations have begun on its Drombeg oil prospect in the southern Porcupine Basin.
The Porcupine Basin is located offshore southwest Ireland.
The Lower Cretaceous Drombeg prospect is in the FEL 2/14 license area, about 135 miles off the west coast of Ireland.
The license is operated by Providence who holds an 80 percent stake.
Sosina Exploration holds the remaining 20 percent.
Providence has agreed to acquire 422 square miles of 3D seismic data over Drombeg.
This data is being collected by Polarcus MC as part of a multi-client survey.
