Exxon Mobil (XOM +0.7%) has kicked off a six-month drilling campaign off southwestern Ireland, and a rig previously stationed offshore Liberia reportedly was relocated to the area last month. The XOM-led consortium includes Eni (E), Repsol and Ireland-based Providence Resources, which says drilling at the Dunquin well began last month; cost estimates are ~$200M.
