Government inspectors have confirmed that Shell carried out unauthorised works on its controversial pipeline at Rossport in Co Mayo.

They found that the company had welded about three km of pipeline without first obtaining permission from the Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources.

The inspections have confirmed allegations by supporters of the five local men imprisoned for protests against the pipeline.

Each stage of work on the project needs to be authorised in advance by the Department.

The Department has now written to Shell chairman Andy Pyle, telling him that the work was unauthorised and seeking an explanation.

The text of the letter has been published on the Department’s website.

Shell has issued a statement acknowledging that the welding may have constituted a technical breach of consent.
