Ireland upstream summary

Report summary

Ireland has five onstream gas fields: Kinsale Head, South West Kinsale, Ballycotton, Seven Heads, and Corrib. Start-up of the latter in 2015 has reversed the decline in domestic gas production, and accounts for around 80% of total gas output. At present, there are no producing oil fields in Ireland; however, start-up of the offshore Barryroe field is expected in the early 2020s. Frontier exploration projects, involving several Majors, are ongoing.
