The jack-up barge, with tug boats in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 30 meters radius centered at the barge. Tugboats will be used for shifting the barge from one borehole location to another.
 
A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other craft of the project. Craft involved in the works will exhibit the appropriate local and
international day and night signals.
 
When in the vicinity of the working area, mariners are reminded to:
