Statoil has a 36.5% interest in the Corrib gas field north-west of Ireland. The Corrib field development, operated by Shell, was sanctioned in 2001, and production start-up is currently expected to take place in 2015.

The development will comprise seven subsea wells, and the gas will be transported through a pipeline to an onshore gas processing terminal. The gas will be exported from the terminal via the Bord Gais Eireann linkline to the existing Irish gas grid.
