Why the Corrib gas Field is not going to make Ireland rich

The prospect of ever-rising gas prices has greatly enhanced the value of the Corrib gas field off the Mayo coast. The latest estimate is that it will contribute some €6bn to the country’s GDP over it’s lifetime. Four years ago, the same consultants estimated the likely contribution to be €3bn.

With Brinded now gone, might CIO Alan Matula now come under scrutiny ? The parallels are there: years of over-promise/under-delivery, aggressive suppression of bad news, and the intimidation of critics through behaviour bordering on the psychopathic. There’s little doubt that the cost of Matula’s vanity projects is playing a significant role on the demise of Downstream, where businesses like Retail make margin on cans of Coke. It’s sad to see DS businesses being divested, but at least one can share their sense of relief as they leave Shell and start divesting themselves of all this junk. read more
