Irish Times: Minister will consider deferral of order

Irish Times: Minister will consider deferral of order

“The Mayo-based Shell to Sea campaign described the proposal yesterday as “incredible”. It has been calling on the company for weeks to follow the ministerial order and dismantle the illegally welded section – which was reported by The Irish Times last July.”

Minister for the Marine Noel Dempsey says he will “consider” a call by some north Mayo residents for a deferral of his dismantling order for the illegally welded section of the Shell onshore gas pipeline.

The Minister was responding to a statement issued by the Pro-Erris Gas Group (PEGG) yesterday, in which it proposed the dismantling be postponed until the Minister’s new safety review is published.

The group said that if the safety review endorsed the onshore pipeline, Shell should be fined a minimum of 250,000 instead.
