Shell tried to drive Shell gas station operators out of business

FROM OUR SHELL NEWS ARCHIVE 9 DECEMBER 2004

They beat us up for so many years. It was terrible what they did,” he said.

Corrib gas could push up prices

10 July 2011 By John Burke Public Affairs Correspondent

Homeowners are facing the ‘‘very likely’’ risk that energy prices could rise due to competition between the new Corrib gas supply and the Bord Gáis owned undersea gas-supply interconnectors, the state energy regulator has warned.
