It is one of a number of exploration areas held by Providence in Ireland’s Atlantic waters, a region that’s increasingly seen as a ‘hot spot’ for new potentially high impact exploration.

Last year, Providence took part in a drill programme albeit it didn’t unearth a discovery and it is anticipated that new wells are being planned by explorers in the region, drilling is likely to start in 2019.

In the Celtic Sea, meanwhile, the company recently secured a partnership agreement with a Chinese consortium which will see the Barryroe oil field advance to development and ultimately production.

At Barryroe, the next phase of appraisal drilling is expected to kick off in 2019.
