Corrib Gas Project: Statement by Eamonn O’Coillea’in to An Bord Pleanála hearing

Email we received from Mr Eamonn O’Coillea’in

It is absolutely unreal. The applicant for this refinery and now the finally untreated raw gas pipeline is all ready 10 years old, so the people of Erris, co Mayo , Ireland do not feel safe with the risks involved in this pipeline being built up our ocean bay and though privately owned lands that the people have strongly objected to for the last 10 years . Please help if you can. Thank you

Comment from Eamonn: Since Irish Minister Ray Burke met with Shell alone, behind closed doors, It makes one wonder about the policy’s  of the present government that gave away our natural resources, when the Irish people should have received their fair share instead of  nothing in these economic times of cut backs to hospitals, education, old peoples pensions, Christmas funds and every thing else that was cut back on…

Energy firms to quit Iran to comply with US sanctions

BBC NEWS

30 September 2010

Four major energy companies are pulling out of Iran in order to comply with US sanctions, the state department says.

Royal Dutch Shell, Total, Statoil and Italy ENI will now avoid US penalties targeting companies which do business with Iran.

Tehran insists its nuclear programme is for purely peaceful purposes.

‘Conduit for cash’

Recent legislation gives the US administration the power to penalise foreign companies which invest more than $20m ($12.7m) in Iran’s energy sector.

However, companies taking steps to comply with the law are exempted from penalties. read more
