Offshore staff

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Providence Resources has been awarded a Foreshore License over an area in the Kish Bank basin, offshore Dublin.

The permit, granted by the Foreshore Unit of the Irish Department of Environment, Community and Local Government, authorizes a 2D seismic program, a well site survey, and drilling of an exploration well on the Dalkey Island prospect in Standard Exploration License 2/11

Providence and partner Petronas committed to drill the well last year, pending approvals.  They will now look to procure a site survey vessel and a drilling rig.
