Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) welcomes An Bord Pleanála’s approval for the construction of the Corrib onshore pipeline - 20th January, 2011

Speaking today, Terry Nolan, SEPIL MD, said: “We are pleased with the decision of An Bord Pleanála to grant permission for the Corrib onshore gas pipeline. We believe this decision is good for Mayo and Ireland.” 

In its detailed determination issued today, the Board stated that the development “would help safeguard the energy security of the State, would benefit the Western Region of Ireland, would not seriously injure the amenities of the area . . .  would not be prejudicial to public health or to public safety [and] would not be likely to have significant effects on the environment.”

“We hope that An Bord Pleanála’s thorough examination of our application and subsequent endorsement of it will allow people to feel their concerns have been fully addressed. We are committed to working positively with the local community throughout the construction period and thereafter. ”

With five wells at the Corrib field and the offshore pipeline already in place, and the terminal at Bellanaboy also close to completion, Mr Nolan said the company was looking forward to completing the final phase.

“Today’s positive decision from ABP means the Corrib Gas Partners can focus on completing this strategically important project and delivering the gas to Ireland.  At peak production, Corrib gas will supply up to 60% of Ireland’s natural gas needs and will play an important role in Ireland’s energy security in the years ahead.”

Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) welcomes the resumption of An Bord Pleanála’s oral hearing into the Corrib onshore gas pipeline - Tuesday 24th August, 2010

Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) looks forward to participating fully in An Bord Pleanála’s resumed oral hearing into the Corrib onshore pipeline.
Following the Board’s request for further information, SEPIL submitted a revised Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under the Strategic Infrastructure Act, seeking planning permission to build a 4.9km tunnel under Sruwaddacon Bay, to carry the onshore pipeline from the landfall at Glengad towards the gas processing terminal at Bellanaboy.
By building the pipeline under Sruwaddacon Bay the nearest occupied house is now 234 metres away from the pipeline, more than three times the original distance.
Speaking in Belmullet today, Mr. Terry Nolan, SEPIL Managing Director, said: “The resumption of the oral hearing will allow us to demonstrate in a clear and transparent way the very significant safety systems and features incorporated in the design of the Corrib project. The Corrib onshore pipeline is safe. Its design provides a level of safety considerably beyond the risk criteria suggested by An Bord Pleanála,” said Mr. Nolan.
“An Bord Pleanála also asked us to bring the pipeline route through Sruwaddacon Bay.  We have designed a tunnel to carry the pipeline under the bay because it will have the least environmental impact on the bay, which is a Special Area of Conservation,” Mr. Nolan concluded.

Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) Submits Revised EIS for Corrib Onshore Pipeline - May 31st, 2010

SEPIL has today responded positively to An Bord Pleanála’s request to re-route the onshore pipeline through Sruwaddacon Bay.

In a revised Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) submitted under the Strategic Infrastructure Act, SEPIL is seeking planning permission to build a tunnel under Sruwaddacon Bay, to carry the onshore pipeline from the landfall at Glengad towards the Bellanaboy Gas Processing Terminal.  By building the pipeline under Sruwaddacon Bay the nearest occupied house is now 234 metres away from the pipeline, more than three times the original distance.

Speaking today Mr. Terry Nolan, SEPIL Managing Director, said: “An Bord Pleanála asked us to alter the pipeline route and to bring it through Sruwaddacon Bay.  We believe a tunnel under Sruwaddacon Bay will have the least environmental impact on the bay, which is a Special Area of Conservation.  The normal operating pressure in the onshore pipeline will be 85bar – which is similar to the pressure in BGÉ transmission lines throughout the country.”

“The proposed Corrib onshore pipeline meets or exceeds all relevant international and Irish pipeline codes and standards. It also meets the safety criteria established by An Bord Pleanála,” he said.

“The revised EIS demonstrates in a clear and transparent way that the Corrib pipeline is safe and does not pose an unacceptable risk to the public. The Corrib Gas Partner’s are fully committed to completing this strategically important infrastructural project as quickly as possible – to the benefit of all stakeholders,” Mr. Nolan concluded.

Consultation for Revised Pipeline Route - April 2010

Over the past few months, Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) has been working, with its consultants RPS, on addressing matters raised by An Bord Pleanála in its letter of November 2, 2009, in respect of SEPIL’s application for the modified Corrib onshore pipeline.  In that letter, An Bord Pleanála sought further information from SEPIL in respect of the application and invited the company to modify a section of the pipeline route away from Rossport and into Sruwaddacon Bay.

A response to this request for further information will be submitted to An Bord Pleanála in May of this year. This will include the preparation and submission of a revised Corrib onshore pipeline Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

While SEPIL stands over the safety of the pipeline design, as proposed in its application of February 2009, it is committed to positively addressing the matters raised by An Bord Pleanála in its November letter. To that end, SEPIL is studying and assessing the potential route options within Sruwaddacon Bay, as well as the possible construction methodologies for the portion of the pipeline through the bay.

SEPIL wishes to seek the views of the community on these matters and to respond to any queries and concerns individuals and groups may have in relation to them.  Over the course of the next month, SEPIL and RPS staff will be conducting face-to-face and small group meetings within the community and will be circulating further information.

In addition, our online feeback facility is available through this website by clicking here

If you would like to participate in one of the small group meetings (which will be held after Easter), please contact us on 097 20720 or by emailing routeinfo@rpsgroup.com

Corrib Project Update - February 2010

An Bord Pleanála wrote to RPS on November 2, 2009 requesting further information with respect to the modified pipeline route application under the Strategic Infrastructure Act.  The letter said that a decision on the application has been deferred, pending the provision of further information by February 5, 2010.   The Board also said that in light of the strategic national importance of the project, their provisional view was that “it would be appropriate to approve the proposed onshore pipeline development should alterations be made to the proposed development.” 

RPS has been working closely with Shell E&P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) since November on gathering the additional information for the response to An Bord Pleanála. In January, RPS wrote on SEPIL's behalf to the Board to indicate that good progress was being made in responding positively to the Board’s request for further information.  However, given the complexity and extent of studies involved, SEPIL asked for some additional time to prepare its response.  The Board has agreed to this request and extended the time to provide the further information to May 31, 2010.  On January 15, 2010 SEPIL has submitted an application for a Foreshore Licence to the Department of Environment, Heritage and Local Government (DoEHLG).  This was to seek permission to carry out geotechnical and geophysical investigations in Sruwaddacon Bay.  Similar geotechnical survey work was carried out by RPS/SEPIL in Sruwaddacon Bay in 2008.

Application to the Department of the Environment, Heritage & Local Government

Shell E&P Ireland Ltd (SEPIL) have applied for a Foreshore Licence for a geotechnical and geophysical site investigation in Sruwaddacon Bay.  The application is available at Belmullet and Ballina Garda Stations or alternatively may be viewed by clicking here.

Media Statement

The Corrib Gas Partners today received a detailed letter from An Bord Pleanála in respect of their application for a modified onshore pipeline route.  The partners note the Board's provisional view that "it would be appropriate to approve the proposed onshore pipeline development should alterations be made to the proposed development".  In relation to the issue of safety, the Corrib Gas Partners remain firmly of the view that the pipeline, as designed, is safe and meets all international standards and industry best practice.  Notwithstanding this, the Corrib Gas Partners will now give detailed consideration to the Board’s specific requests for further information and modifications to the route.
