Application to the Foreshore Unit of the Department of the Environment, Heritage & Local Government - Corrib Gas Pipeline

Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) submitted an application for the revised Corrib Gas Pipeline route in February 2009 to the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food under the Foreshore Acts 1933 – 2003 (as amended).  Following the An Bord Pleanála (ABP) oral hearing in 2009, ABP requested modifications to the onshore pipeline.  This has required the withdrawal by SEPIL of the 2009 Foreshore Licence Application in June 2010.  A new Foreshore Licence Application was submitted to the Foreshore Unit of the Department of the Environment, Heritage & Local Government on Wednesday 16th June, 2010 and a period of statutory consultation took place between 6th July, 2010 and 30th August, 2010.  Following the submission of additional information to the Foreshore Unit, a further period of statutory consultation will commence on Tuesday 26th October 2010 and will run until 5.30pm on Tuesday 23rd November 2010.  To view the application made to the Foreshore Unit including the additional information submitted, please click here.
