CGG, a French-based seismic contractor, has completed 3D seismic survey over Frontier Exploration Licence (FEL) 3/04 located in the southern Porcupine Basin, offshore Ireland.

FEL 3/04 is operated by Eni Ireland (36.913%) on behalf of its partners Repsol Exploracion Irlanda (33.557%), Providence Resources (26.846%) and Sosina Exploration (2.684%).

The survey was conducted over around 1,800 km2 utilizing the CGG Oceanic Caspian seismic vessel.

According to Providence, the main objective of the survey is to understand the hydrocarbon potential of the undrilled Lower Cretaceous Dunquin South carbonate exploration prospect.

A further objective is to assess the nature and hydrocarbon potential of the c. 700 km2 Dunquin Ridge which underlies both Dunquin carbonate build-ups and which was not penetrated by the previous well.
