THE SUNDAY BUSINESS POST (IRELAND) Shell considers public discussions: Sunday 14 August 2005 


By Niamh Connolly


Oil company Shell is asking the public for written submissions with their views on the controversial Corrib gas terminal in Mayo.


The company is also considering more direct discussions with the public through a series of public meetings. It has already held meetings with third parties such as the Chambers of Commerce and Mayo County Council.


The company secured a significant victory last Friday when Mayo County Council voted against a motion calling for the gas pipeline to be moved offshore, following legal advice that the council would be exposed to litigation.


Shell asked protesters to allow environmental, safety and maintenance works at Bellanaboy, Rossport and Glengad Corrib Sites to start tomorrow.
