Gas & Oil

Murjoy has excelled in the area of Gas and Oil over the past 40 years. We have become a lead figure in contract work for Ervia, who operate the national grid in Ireland.

Our specific expertise in this area is the laying of underground gas pipelines and to date this has spanned hundreds of kilometres. We also provide expertise in the area of AGI (above ground installation) manufacturing.

These areas are located at various stages of pipelines which allow the reduction of the gas pressure.
