AGR begins decommissioning operations offshore Ireland

17 November 2020

AGR has begun decommissioning operations at Ireland’s first indigenous gas wells, on behalf of PSE Kinsale Energy.

PSE Kinsale Energy Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of PETRONAS, is decommissioning its gas fields in the Kinsale Area in the Celtic Sea, approximately 50 km off the south coast of Cork, Ireland.
