The Corrib field development, operated by Shell, started production on 30 December 2015.  The Corrib gas field is located 83 kilometres off Ireland’s northwest coast in water depths of almost 350 metres.

At peak annual production, the field is expected to produce around 260 MM scf/d of gas, which is 45,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d).

The initial development comprises six subsea wells, and gas is transported through an 83 km pipeline to an onshore gas processing terminal. The gas is exported from the terminal via the Bord Gais Eireann linkline to the existing Irish gas grid.
