News Release: Shell to Sea tender for Oil & Gas Review Contract

News release - Issued by Shell to Sea - Monday 14th October 2013


Shell to Sea have today submitted a tender application to the Department of Energy in response to Minister Pat Rabbitte's call for expert advice to review the generous oil and gas terms that are currently on offer to oil & gas companies.[1]

The Shell to Sea tender undertakes to “initiate the most thorough, far-reaching inquiry yet into the fiscal regime governing resource extraction in Ireland, taking all voices into consideration and evaluating all available data”.  Shell to Sea stated that it would build on the work that had been published in its in-depth 44 page report entitled Liquid Assets, in which the 69 publically known prospects and discoveries were analysed. This report showed that energy companies estimate the potential fields could contain 21 billion barrels of oil equivalent.

Shell to Sea’s tender bid is free of charge as it feels that “assisting Ireland in getting an adequate return from its own oil and gas is payment enough”.

News release - Issued by Shell to Sea - Tuesday, 10th September 2013

Eight campaigners are due to appear in Belmullet District Court this Wednesday (11th Sept) charged in relation to protesting against the Corrib Gas project.

Included among the eight campaigners are both Shell to Sea spokespersons Maura Harrington and Terence Conway along with Pobail Chill Chomáin spokesperson John Monaghan. 

Also due to appear in court is Gerry Bourke, the farmer who provided the field for the Rossport Solidarity Camp for the last two years. [1]

Following the recent allegations  by a former subcontractor for Shell, that they supplied bribes of alcohol to the Belmullet Garda station for 3 years, Human Rights group Afri stated that they believe "that there there are abuses of Garda power in Erris of ‘Donegal proportions’, as revealed in the Morris Tribunal, and that urgent, immediate and independent investigation is required." [2,3,4]
