Employees working at gas field

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.
