DUBLIN, Ireland – Providence Resources has received approval from Ireland’s government for a survey program at the Barryroe field in the North Celtic Sea.
The seabed and shallow geophysical survey and environmental baseline/habitat assessment survey will take place at the K-Site location in standard exploration license 1/11, and will be completed later this year.
CEO Alan Linn said: “With this approval now in place we can begin the detailed work required to complete the environmental and regulatory approvals for the appraisal and development of the Barryroe oil and gas field, working closely with Irish companies to progress the project.”
Current plans call for an early development scheme focused on the field’s eastern panel, involving three production wells with ~200-m (656-ft) horizontal completions into the A-sand reservoir; a single water injection well into the A-sand reservoir; subsea production trees with manifold and umbilical to a leased FPSO; and a leased FSO for oil storage and offtake.
The topsides facilities will include oil processing/water and gas injection/power generation and flow assurance.
