Dear Minister Pat Rabbitte,
Shell to Sea has called for two days of action this weekend starting today, Friday April 1, and tomorrow Saturday April 2, at Aughoose where members claim that Shell E&P Ireland has started construction work on a 5km tunnel which will go under Sruwaddacon Estuary. However Shell E&P Ireland in response to the accusations from Shell to Sea, issued a statement denying it had started tunnelling works and said it was only carrying out site investigation works in preparation for construction and they had not actually started construction works. The statement from Shell E&P Ireland stated: “Shell E&P Ireland Limited is currently carrying out site investigation work on its own land in Aughoose. This is in preparation for the start of construction work on the onshore pipeline.”
Up to 20 opposition TDs attended a Dublin Shell to Sea photo-call and press conference on Tuesday at the Kildare Street gates of Leinster House.
Shell to Sea has criticised a decision by Minister for Energy Pat Carey to sign consents for the last section of the Corrib gas pipeline on the day of the General Election. Permission has been granted for the construction of a gas pipeline from the Corrib gas field subsea facilities to the Corrib gas terminal at Bellanaboy and for an approval of an addendum to the Plan of Development for the Corrib gas field development.
The final section of the Corrib gas pipeline has been granted permission by An Bord Pleanála. The revised route submitted by Shell E&P Ireland last year will link the pipeline at Glengad to the gas terminal at Bellanaboy.
TO SAY that the Shell gas pipeline and terminal in north Mayo has been the subject of controversy would be to understate seriously.
A book which tells the definitive story of the battle between oil giant Shell and a small Irish farming community over the location of an onshore gas pipeline is now released.
The State and Shell have lost their bid to stop two Mayo citizens pursuing High Court claims as to whether a ministerial consent given eight years ago for the Shell gas pipeline is valid. The decision was welcomed by Cllr Harry Barrett. Judge Laffoy ruled last week that Brendan Philbin and Bríd McGarry were allowed to have that issue and other public law claims ruled on by the court.
Shell E&P Ireland have been granted a four-month extension by an Bord Pleanála to the previous deadline of February 5 for the submission of further information in relation to the onshore pipeline in Erris. The deadline has now been extended to May 31 to allow Shell more time to submit information which the Board requested in a four-page letter to Shell last November.
Twelve people were arrested following a protest against the Corrib gas pipeline this week, including previously jailed Rossport Five member and 2007 Goldman Environment Prize winner Willie Corduff.
