I am not totally confident in my calculations, but here is what I get for the current portion of VET's Corrib holdings in terms of profitability after taxes, including the WPT. This only applies to the portion of Corrib VET currently owns. I ignored tax pools, but my numbers are similar to those of Cool's. We both use 148 million as the gross-up pretax profits.

Ireland is highly profitable after-tax compared to the prior four years, even with the WPT.
While I wish there were no WPT, it does not change the fact that Ireland is highly profitable for VET.
