Public Consultation on an application by Vermilion E&P Ireland Limited to conduct an offshore pipeline survey and inspection of the offshore facilities in the Corrib Field

Vermilion Exploration & Production Ireland (Vermilion) plan to undertake a geophysical and visual survey programme of the Corrib offshore gas pipeline, sections of the umbilical, Bellanaboy Bridge Gas Terminal (BBGT) treated surface water outfall pipeline, and infield flowlines and umbilicals between the Corrib Field manifold and the landfall at Glengad, northwest Co. Mayo. In addition, the scope of work will include a programme of repair / renewal works at the P3 wellhead including some potential rectification works and integrity testing at the Corrib Field, which will also require the use of acoustic survey equipment. The surveys will inspect and assess the integrity of the subsea structures and are being undertaken to provide up-to-date seabed asset data, which will help determine the exact requirements of maintenance work scheduled for 2019 and beyond.
