Shell E&P Ireland Limited is the operator of the Corrib gas project, one of the most exciting and challenging engineering developments ever undertaken in Ireland.  Ireland currently imports more than 90% of its gas and generates two thirds of its electricity from gas. The Corrib development is strategically important from an energy security perspective, because at peak production, Corrib has the potential to deliver more than 60% of Ireland’s gas needs.

The Corrib development will contribute €6 billion to Ireland’s GDP over its lifecycle.  It has sustained an average of 1,250 jobs during the construction phase (2005-2014) and will provide 175 full time jobs for the next 15-20 years.
