In compliance with the Maryland Coastal Management Program, TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company serves not

In compliance with the Maryland Coastal Management Program, TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company serves notice of its application to perform a geophysical exploration survey to the Maryland Department of the Environment (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Permit Application E14-001). Information on seismic surveys is also available on the U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management website at: http://www.boem.gov/Atlantic-G-G-PEIS. The following describes the proposed survey in federal waters offshore Maryland. As currently planned, 2,768 mi lines are included offshore Maryland's coastal zone and within offshore administrative boundaries, representing 8% of the entire proposed survey lines. TGS has designed its survey such that no geophysical exploration will occur closer than 25 mi from the shoreline. The project does not propose any active surveying in the state's coastal zone (state waters). TGS plans to use two (2) modern 2D seismic vessels with dedicated seismic and maritime crews. The seismic vessels will operate alongside several support vessels whose main purpose is to ensure the safety of the in-sea equipment. Vessels may, as necessary, utilize established shipping channels and ports for service. The survey vessels will likely acquire data at opposite ends of the proposed survey and will operate at least 25 mi apart. All seismic vessels are equipped with Automatic Identification Systems (AIS) which identify the vessels on standard radars, allowing for immediate identification of the seismic vessel to other vessels at a distance of at least 30 mi. TGS' seismic operations will occur along pre-determined track lines at speeds of approximately 4-5 knots up to 24 hours per day as possible. Results of the 2D seismic program will be interpreted to identify and map potential hydrocarbon-bearing formations and the geologic structures that surround them. Survey activities are planned for the second quarter of 2015. COMMENT PERIOD: April 15, 2015 - April 28, 2015 This application is subject to a 14 day public comment period. All comments are due on or before April 28, 2015. All comments should reference "TGS - BOEM Permit Application E14-001" and be forwarded to: Joseph Abe, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Tawes State Office Building, 580 Taylor Avenue, E-2, Annapolis, MD 21401 Email: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) Phone: 410-260-8740. ap15-17,20-24,27,28^EndOfRecord
