In deep water exploration areas such as the South Porcupine Basin, companies like ExxonMobil bring an unrivalled level of technological, commercial and financial experience essential to the success of such projects. In addition, ExxonMobil's global experience with geological plays analogous to those in the South Porcupine licences ensures that exploration risk is mitigated as far as possible.

The ExxonMobil partnership began in 2006 when ExxonMobil farmed-into the Dunquin license. Subsequently, an AMI in the South Porcupine basin was formed which led to the acquisition of the Drombeg and Goban Spur licences.
