Irish Times: Dempsey may allow offshore pipe to be laid

Irish Times: Dempsey may allow offshore pipe to be laid

“The company said yesterday it was “carefully studying” the content of the letter received from Mr Dempsey on Sunday night in which he ordered that the 3km length of pipeline already welded in breach of consents be dismantled.”: “A tighter monitoring regime established from the outset of the project would have spotted any breaches in consents much earlier, according to Mark Garavan, spokesman for the men and the Shell to Sea campaign. He said it also had serious implications for the information presented by Shell to the High Court when obtaining its injunction against landowners objecting to the onshore pipeline. The company had at all times claimed that it was adhering to all consents issued, but this was clearly not the case, Mr Garavan added.”:

Minister for the Marine Noel Dempsey is under pressure now to grant Shell E&P Ireland approval to proceed to lay the offshore section of the Corrib gas pipeline, even as his new safety measures for the onshore pipeline are being put in place.

Shell E&P Ireland would neither confirm nor deny yesterday that it has applied to lay the 70km offshore section of the pipeline linking the Corrib gas field well head to the shoreline at north Mayo. read more

Irish Independent: Fuel giant weighs up demand by Dempsey

“FUEL giant Shell is taking legal advice before responding to a ministerial order to dismantle 3km of pipeline constructed in Mayo without consent.”: “But he once again ruled out intervening in the cases of the five Mayo farmers jailed nearly six weeks ago for refusing to obey a High Court order preventing them from obstructing the construction work on their land.”: “Delays caused by protests have already led to 91 redundancies among pipeline workers and it is understood there is the potential for a further 200 lay-offs.”

FUEL giant Shell is taking legal advice before responding to a ministerial order to dismantle 3km of pipeline constructed in Mayo without consent.

Natural Resources Minister Noel Dempsey said yesterday that Shell would be given consent to complete the gas pipeline once it met technical requirements.

But he once again ruled out intervening in the cases of the five Mayo farmers jailed nearly six weeks ago for refusing to obey a High Court order preventing them from obstructing the construction work on their land. read more

SHELL became embroiled in legal tangles over its Corrib gas project yesterday when an Irish minister ordered the company to dismantle a three-kilometre section of pipeline.

The gas pipeline, part of a €900 million (£620 million) project to bring fuel from a gasfield 80 kilometres off the coast of Co Mayo to an onshore processing facility, has been dogged by controversy, including the arrest of five local men protesting against the pipeline. read more

“The Irish government yesterday ordered Shell to dismantle a gas pipeline that has sparked protests in County Mayo.”: “Shell has suspended its £605m project to link the Corrib gas field to an onshore refinery.”: “The pipeline has become a major public relations disaster for Shell, which admitted at its half-year results last week that it needed to drastically improve its project management.”

The Irish government yesterday ordered Shell to dismantle a gas pipeline that has sparked protests in County Mayo.

Noel Dempsey, the minister for communications, marine and natural resources, told the oil company to take apart just under two miles of pipeline that he said had been built without consent.

“What I am ordering them to do now is to undo the length of pipeline they welded,” he said.

The minister also said the oil major will now have to face much closer scrutiny and unannounced visits from government inspectors. Shell has suspended its £605m project to link the Corrib gas field to an onshore refinery. read more

Natural Resources Minister Noel Dempsey has given the global oil firm Shell permission to build the offshore section of its planned gas pipeline in Co Mayo.

Mr Dempsey confirmed today that he was giving consent for the offshore section despite the fact that an independent safety review of the onshore section has yet to be finalised.

Yesterday, the minister ordered Shell to dismantle a section of pipeline it had already laid in Co Mayo without any consent from the Government.

Several local residents are vehemently opposed to the laying of an onshore pipeline and want gas from the Corrib field to be pumped to an offshore terminal instead. read more
