Top Five Moments 2014
We’d like to share some of our favourite moments and milestones from the Corrib gas project this year.
Longest tunnel in Ireland reaches its destination – May 2014
The 4.9km tunnel, (which is 300m longer than Dublin’s Port Tunnel) will be used to connect the previously laid 83km offshore pipeline from the Corrib Field to the Bellanaboy Bridge Gas Processing Terminal.
Corrib wells ready to flow – July 2014
Gas was flared from the Ocean Guardian rig for a 24 hour period confirming the production capacity of the completed ‘P6 well’. This means that all five Corrib wells required for start-up are now ready to flow.
