Strengthening of local support structures
Funding of research data gathering and 'land-based' research in Irish offshore areas
Providing a forum for co-operation amongst explorationists and researchers
Research under the Programme goes beyond normal licence area-specific work and is designed so as not to duplicate the efforts of other groups or of commercial contractors. It is also considered essential that local researchers should be given an opportunity to participate in the research projects. PIP is funded by oil companies with licences offshore Ireland and the PAD.
The ISPSG will hold the Atlantic Ireland 2018 Conference and Exhibition on Tuesday 30th & Wednesday 31st October 2018 at the Clayton Burlington (formerly Doubletree or Burlington) Hotel, Upper Leeson Street, Dublin 4.
Please contact Eamonn Kelly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Alice Mitchinson (email@example.com) for further information.
Under the 2013 Open Call, PIP has awarded €2.5m in research funding to fifteen (15) Irish and international researchers. The projects are aimed at improving knowledge of petroleum systems and exploration potential offshore Ireland, developing environmental monitoring techniques and specialist engineering studies to improve Exploration & Production cost effectiveness.
