Shell in Ireland
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 project will contribute €6 billion to Ireland’s GDP over its lifecycle and will have created more than 1,000 jobs during the construction phase providing 175 full time jobs on completion.
Corrib’s first project update in 2014 is now available. Follow the link to find out the latest news from Shell Ireland.
Shell’s Corrib project in North Mayo has been awarded one of the top accolades at the 2014 annual Irish Logistics and Transport Awards 2014.
The Corrib Natural Gas scholarship programme has been hailed by SEPIL managing director, Michael Crothers, as “the most important community programme we have because it is no less than an investment in the future of Ireland.”
