Drive Safely, Arrive Safely. Safety tips for Mayo roads

Recognising the exposure faced by staff and contractors on the Corrib gas project while driving in the course of their work, Shell E&P Ireland Limited produced a safe driving video aimed at increasing awareness of the hazards faced when driving on western roads.

The Corrib Gas Story

Watch the Corrib Gas Story – and understand our challenges and our successes, as we move ahead to bring Corrib gas on-stream in North-West Ireland. Gas from the Corrib field, 83km offshore, will be piped directly to the Bellanaboy Bridge gas terminal located approximately 9 km from the shoreline in County Mayo.

One million hours worked safely at the Corrib Gas Terminal

The more than 900 workers on the Corrib Gas terminal site at Bellanaboy have celebrated the achievement of 1,000,000 man-hours worked without a lost time incident. This major safety milestone was reached on November 3rd 2008. This DVD shows the team at work, helping to deliver one of the most challenging energy projects ever undertaken in Ireland.

Remotely Operated Vehicle

The Atlantic Ocean is 350 metres deep above the Corrib Reservoir. This water depth is unsuitable for divers so construction and maintenance work will be carried out by “remotely operated vehicles” a type of underwater robot.
