#MarineNotice - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) advises that the annual pipeline and umbilical maintenance inspection survey and flowline installation work will shortly be undertaken at the Corrib Gas Field.

Works will commence on Thursday 24 July 2014 at the Corrib field and along the pipeline corridor to the landfall at Broadhaven Bay, Co Mayo. The works and are expected to be completed by the end of the first week of September by the vessel Normand Reach (Call sign 2HMG8).
