#MarineNotice - Seabird Exploration FZ LLC is scheduled to carry out a 2D seismic survey in the South Porcupine Basin off the southwest coast of Ireland.

Acquisition of 4,500km of seismic data is anticipated to commence shortly with an expected duration of 45 days, subject to weather.

The seismic vessel M/V Harrier Explorer (Call sign 3EIE3) is scheduled to carry out the work.

The vessel will be towing one 10km cable at a depth of 14 metres. A buoy equipped with a radar reflector and navigation strobe light will be deployed at the end of the cable.

The seismic vessel will be accompanied by guard vessel M/V Stormbas (Call sign HO4190), and will be restricted in its ability to manoeuvre whilst carrying out the survey. Both work vessels will be listening on VHF Channels 16 & 67.

All other vessels, particularly those engaged in fishing, are requested to give the M/V Harrier Explorer, her towed equipment, and the M/V Stormbas a wide berth and keep a sharp lookout in the relevant areas.

Details of co-ordinates for the survey area are included in Marine Notice No 49 of 2014, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.
