- Status: Proposed
- Type: Import
- FID Status: Pre-FID
- Start Year: 2024

In September 2020, Predator Oil & Gas completed its timeline for commissioning the floating LNG import terminal in Ireland, with first gas deliveries from the project expected in the first half of 2024.
The company said it had made progress with regulatory authorities, gas infrastructure owners, gas buyers and the FSRU provider "to establish an offshore LNG opportunity for Ireland to import LNG that does not use shale gas as a LNG feedstock." That is key to the project's success after the new Irish government said in June 2020 that it did not support the import of "fracked gas" and would develop a policy to establish that position.
In March 2021, Predator's CEO Paul Griffiths claimed the project was being "accelerated" in light of advances in the regulatory process.
