DUBLIN, Ireland and LONDON – Gardline’s M/V Kommandor survey vessel has mobilized to standard exploration license (SEL) 1/11 for the site survey over the Barryroe oil field, according to Providence Resources.

The field is in 100 m (328 ft) water depth in the North Celtic Sea basin, 50 km (31 mi) offshore southern Ireland.

Providence subsidiary Exola DAC operates on behalf of partners APEC Energy Enterprises and Lansdowne Celtic Sea.

The program involves a seabed debris clearance, environmental baseline and habitat assessment site survey.

The projected program provides for a minimum of two locations to be surveyed at this time with the scope to increase the number of locations upon receipt of the APEC Loan Amount.

The site survey is expected to take up to three weeks depending on operating conditions.
