THE SUNDAY BUSINESS POST: Shell pipeline compensation package totalled €190,000

The 28 landowners who consented to the Shell Corrib gas pipeline passing through their land were given a compensation package understood to total €190,000.

Six other landowners are objecting to the nine-kilometre pipeline. Work on the pipeline stopped last week after five of the landowners obstructed Shell access to their land. The five were imprisoned for breaching a court order which allowed Shell to commence operations.

The €900 million pipeline, when finished, will carry untreated gas from under the Atlantic off the Mayo coast to a refinery inland at Bellanaboy. Residents have claimed that the pipeline will operate at up to 345 bars of pressure, compared to 16 bars of pressure in pipelines in built-up areas.
