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.
Find out more information about the third annual Erris Enterprise Week run by Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL), which aims to facilitate, support and provide advice to local businesses, sporting groups and charities active in Erris and across Mayo.
An Taoiseach, Mr. Enda Kenny, T.D., was in Belmullet, Co. Mayo today to launch Shell’s 2014 Erris Enterprise Week, which provides support and advice to local enterprises and new start-up businesses in Erris and the wider Mayo business community through a series of daily seminars and workshops.
For over four years it was Ireland’s largest construction project, which included building the country’s longest tunnel. Brian Foley from the Construction Industry Federation Magazine reports from Mayo on the long haul that has been the Corrib Gas Project.
Ireland’s Health & Safety Times magazine featured the latest safety news from the Corrib project in its September edition.
