Ireland looking to ban future oil and gas E&P
Ireland has become the latest country to announce it is seeking to ban future oil and gas exploration and production, although existing licences issued will be honoured under the plans proposed by the Irish Cabinet.
If successful, Ireland will join the likes of Denmark, New Zealand and France, who have all announced bans on new oil and gas licensing.
