SHELL CORRIB GAS PROJECT IN IRELAND ON SHAKY GROUND

EMAIL RECEIVED FROM MAURA HARRINGTON SPOKESPERSON OF “SHELL TO SEA” CAMPAIGN: SHELL CORRIB GAS PROJECT IN IRELAND ON SHAKY GROUND

Dear John,

Further interesting developments on the west coast!

This morning registered a 4.0 magnitude earthquake off Belmullet. This occurred in the general area of the Corrib Field and at a depth too close to the reservoir for any complacency.

Shell had hydrotested the offshore pipeline over the weekend and, while I’m by no means saying that Shell is the cause of the earthquake it is not unreasonable to wonder what the effect of this has on ALL their offshore Corrib installations.

Below link to Irish Times article where ‘Shell’s pet Rabbitte’ feels the need to say there is ‘no link’ with Corrib! read more

Shell puts extra €90m into Irish subsidiary

The Irish Times – Monday, January 23, 2012

GORDON DEEGAN

OIL AND GAS multinational Shell has injected €90 million into its Irish subsidiary to deal with the spiralling costs of the Corrib gas field project.

Documents filed with the Companies’ Registration Office show that the global group has pumped the extra money into Shell Ireland.

The Irish company confirmed yesterday that the 5km onshore gas pipeline to bring gas from the offshore Corrib field to the market will not be complete until the second half of 2014.

The Corrib gas partners, Shell, Statoil and Canadian-owned Vermillion are now nine years behind the initial target to start generating revenues from the field. read more

Maura Harrington update on Shell Corrib project

Dear John,

I’ve attached for your perusal up to the minute stuff connected with the proposed Shell/Corrib project in north Mayo.

There are two attachments from the Peoples’ Forum proceedings held at the weekend – Mrs Joy Phido’s was printed as a supplement and included with the main copy of contributions. Mrs Phido’s willingness to travel from London was very much appreciated by the local community and the empathy which has always existed between the Ogoni people and ourselves was once again underlined; there were also very good contributions from those with a national profile – Kieran Allen, Harry Browne and Colm Rapple together with local contributions from Niall King, retired Principal Rossport Primary School and Sam from the Solidarity Camp not forgetting of course Majella McCarron’s paper on the current and developing area of Human Rights. read more

Protestors blockade Corrib Natural Gas building

Corrib building blockaded as Shell AGM held in The Hague and London

Áine Ryan: 17 May 2011

AS ROYAL Dutch Shell holds its AGM in The Hague and London today (Tuesday),  protestors blockaded the Corrib Natural Gas building in Belmullet, to highlight the giant oil company’s huge profits.

The small group of Shell to Sea and Rossport Solidarity Camp protestors stopped workers from entering or exiting the building from about 7.30am.

A Shell spokeswoman confirmed there were company personnel already in the building and that some work continued.

The protestors were peacefully removed, without incident, shortly before noon, after a team of IRMS (Integrated Risk Management Services) security guards arrived. Earlier, retired Garda Supt Pat Doyle, now working for IRMS, had negotiated with the group. read more

Shell protest woman lacks confidence in commission inquiry

The Irish Times – Friday, April 8, 2011

CONOR LALLY

INVESTIGATION: ONE OF the women at the centre of the Garda rape comments controversy has expressed a lack of confidence in the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission’s ability to investigate the gardaí involved and to sanction them.

Jerrie Ann Sullivan said more than 100 complaints have been made over the past two years about gardaí policing the anti-Shell protests in Mayo but none of the gardaí had been sanctioned.

“That doesn’t leave you with a huge amount of hope,” she told a Shell to Sea press conference in Dublin. read more

Corrib protest woman to waive anonymity at press conference

Image: Frerieke via Flickr

ONE OF THE women at the Corrib gaspipe protest towards whom rape remarks were apparently directed by gardai is to waive her anonymity at a press conference this morning.

The woman is to speak to reporters at Buswell’s Hotel in Dublin at 11.30am. A Shell to Sea campaign spokesperson told TheJournal.ie this morning that the woman had taken the decision to reveal her identity because she had been warned that it was being leaked by gardai to the media.

Spokesperson Caoimhe Kerins said:

The reason that she will waive her anonymity is that we have been warned that the names and addresses of the two women have been leaked by gardai to the media and that the Sunday papers were going to report on them. One of the women is not in a position to have her anonymity lifted so this woman is stepping forward. We’re hoping that this will allow her to speak on her own terms. read more

SHELL CALLS IN THE NAVY

SHELL CALLS IN THE NAVY

This is the first time we have been used against civilian protestors, says Navy as gunboat is sent to protect Broadhaven Bay pipeline

By Sandra Murphy

A NAVY gunboat was yesterday deployed to help gardai quell escalating protests by Shell to Sea campaigners at the Corrib gas site. 

The Navy admitted that sending in the LE Orla, a 39-man warship, was the first time the Navy had been used against civilian demonstrators. 

The gunboat was brought in because protesters had entered the water in a bid to halt pipeline works. 

But despite this admission, and claims that the armed forces were being used to ‘crush’ protests, gardai said they were within their rights to call in the warship as back-up.  read more
