A spokesperson for Rathlin Energy (UK)...
The principal business of Rathlin Energy Limited is in the exploration for, and development of, oil and gas reserves in Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The companies are experienced oil and gas field operators and, through the experience of the management it shares with Connaught, have drilled numerous successful exploration and development wells.
Drawing on its international experience Rathlin has identified a range of exploration opportunities, which has led it to acquire exploration rights under licences from the Department of Energy and Climate Change in England and the Department of Enterprise Trade and Investment in Northern Ireland.
In Northern Ireland a joint Rathlin/Mancal exploration well drilled in 2008 tested high quality oil which, although not of itself commercial, represented the first such discovery onshore Ireland and bodes well for the company’s future program of work.
