Rte News (Ireland): Shell seeks dialogue over new route

22 January 2007 16:24

An engineering consultancy firm has been appointed to help find an alternative route for the controversial Corrib Gas pipeline in Co Mayo.

Shell Ireland and its partner companies Statoil and Marathon made the announcement this morning.

Shell says it intends to modify the planned route, which has been strongly opposed by local landowners and residents on health and safety grounds.
In a statement today, it appealed for a process of community consultation and dialogue to find the best route for the onshore pipeline.

Responding to the move, the Shell to Sea campaign group said it remained totally opposed to any plan to bring the gas pipeline ashore, and it again called on Shell to process the gas at sea.

It said a production pipeline presented far too great a hazard from a health and safety point of view ever to be accepted by those living in the area.

About 70 members of the group staged a peaceful demonstration at the entrance to the terminal site this morning. and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
