Dunquin Oil Exploration Project

O’Keeffe’s Oil was awarded the contract for the supply of oil to the mobile oil drilling unit “Eirik Raude” which commenced test drilling in April 2013 in the Porcupine Basin, off the South West Coast of Ireland.  

The contract was awarded to O’Keeffe’s Oil in November 2012 following a lengthy and comprehensive tendering and evaluation process. Obviously safety is of paramount importance to such operations and O’Keeffe’s, through our own in-house safety and operational disciplines, and facilitated by our supply partners Phillips66 Ltd and Esso Ireland Ltd, were able to meet and exceed the exacting qualification criteria set for this project.

The drilling programme is a joint venture between Provident Resources and ExxonMobil and ran until July 2013.  Under the contract, O’Keeffe’s Oil was also required to provide Marine Gas Oil for a number of support vessels involved in the project.

The operation went flawlessly and O'Keeffes Oil look forward to future partnerships for further drillings in the area.
