Setback for the Shell Corrib gas pipeline

The Commercial Court on Tuesday granted an order quashing a revised licence which was issued for the Shell gas terminal in north Mayo.

The refinery site at Ballinaboy was granted a revised licence by the Environmental Protection Agency last June to construct a gas terminal, however it is now accepted that that there were defects in relation to how an environmental impact assessment (EIA ) concerning the terminal development was carried out.

The EPA conceded in court that Martin Harrington, Doohoma, Ballina, was entitled to that order due to defects in the how the EIA concerning the terminal development was carried out.

Mr Justice Peter Kelly granted the order to Mr Harrington after the EPA said it was not opposing his challenge to the licence issued. The EPA will also pay Mr Harrington's legal costs.
