Rabbitte Says Most Atlantic License Winners International Firms

Ireland’s Energy Minister Pat Rabbitte said today that “pretty much all” the winners in the country’s offshore Atlantic oil and gas licensing round are international companies.

Rabbitte, speaking to Dublin-based broadcaster RTE, will announce the winners of the licensing competition at an event in Dublin today. The ministry received 15 separate applications of interest for the licenses earlier this year.
