Irish offshore spend to hit €100m drilling

UP to €100m will be spent on the Irish offshore this year as part of the busiest drilling programme offshore Ireland in decades, according to industry data.

With the Corrib partners completing a total of five production wells on the Corrib gas find, the programme is also scheduled to include drilling on the Old Head of Kinsale gas find by Island Oil and Gas, as well as the Hook Head prospect, where Providence is the operator.
