An AMEC-led joint venture has secured an GBP 100 million contract to design and build a gas terminal on the West Coast of Ireland for Enterprise Energy Ireland, a subsidiary of Enterprise Oil PLC. The terminal will be located at Bellanaboy in County Mayo and will form part of a major investment by Enterprise Energy Ireland Ltd. to retrieve natural gas from the Corrib Gas Field, located 70km off the West Coast of Ireland in over 1100 feet of water. The gas is located a further 13,000 feet below the seabed. Once operational, the Corrib Field will provide Ireland with a secure indigenous supply of gas for many years. The terminal will be built by the AMEC-led ASI Joint Venture, which will be responsible for engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning. The joint venture comprises AMEC and leading Irish industrial companies SIAC Construction, civil engineering contractor, and IIF (Irish Industrial Fabricators), mechanical and electrical contractor. Construction work at the terminal site is linked to the planning process that is currently being handled by Mayo County Council.
