RTE NEWS (IRELAND): Dempsey concerned over Shell pipeline

Saturday 23 July 2005 15:00

The Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources, Noel Dempsey, has said he believes Shell may have breached the terms of the permissions given to it in relation to the development of the controversial pipeline in Co Mayo.

The Minister said Dept officials had carried out an inspection at the site earlier this week and subject to further legal advice, it was his view that a breach of the consents given to Shell in relation to the pipeline had occurred.

He said a letter had been written to the company asking them to respond to this and he was regarding the matter as ‘very serious’.

RTÉ News understands that this relates to the welding on the Corrib Gas terminal site of large sections of the pipeline.

Meanwhile, up to 2,000 people have gathered in Dublin to protest at the jailing of five Co Mayo landowners who were sent to prison four weeks ago for breaching a High Court order.
