The Corrib field development, operated by Vermilion, started production on 30 December 2015. The Corrib gas field is located 83 kilometres off Ireland’s northwest coast in water depths of almost 350 metres.
The field reached peak production of 350 MM scf/d of gas, which is 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) in 2016.
The initial development comprises six subsea wells, and gas is transported through an 83 km pipeline to an onshore gas processing terminal. The gas is exported from the terminal via the Bord Gais Eireann linkline to the existing Irish gas grid.
The coast of Ireland has strong wind conditions making it an interesting market for offshore wind. Together with our Irish partner, ESB, we are considering the feasibility of the following potential offshore wind projects:
Sea Stacks Offshore Wind
Helvick Offshore Wind
LochGarman Offshore Wind
Moneypoint Offshore Wind
Celtic Offshore Wind
