Shell Ireland Corrib Gas Project Startup Delayed To ’12-’13

LONDON (Dow Jones)–The startup of Royal Dutch Shell PLC’s (RDSB) Corrib gas project off the west coast of Ireland will be delayed to 2012-2013, the company said Tuesday in a strategy update.

The project was originally set to come online between 2010-2011, but has been held up. Shell was asked by Ireland’s planning board in late 2009 to consider an alternative route for a nine-kilometer onshore pipeline to deliver gas from its Corrib fields to a processing terminal in response to local opposition.

“In Ireland, the Corrib Gas Project is currently under development, and is largely complete (pending a final decision from the Irish planning board on an application for a nine kilometres onshore pipeline),” the company said in its 2009 annual report.

Shell is the operator of Corrib and has a 45% stake in the project.
