British explorer Europa Oil and Gas has hinted at the potential for significant new discoveries near the Corrib gas field off Ireland’s north-west coast, writes Geoff Percival.

The company, which has an estimated near five billion barrels of oil across seven licences offshore Ireland, has estimated 2.5 trillion cubic feet of gas at its Slyne Basin exploration area, which lies adjacent to Corrib.

Shares in the company — which is actively seeking farm-out deals for its Irish assets — rose by nearly 7% on its latest news.
