Corrib awards support contract to RPS

Tuesday, January 23 11:04:02
The Corrib Gas Partners today confirmed the appointment of RPS to provide engineering support services for the onshore pipeline.
The services to be provided by RPS will include consultation around the criteria for finding a modified route, surveying and mapping, engineering design, environmental assessment, procurement support and construction supervision.
RPS is highly experienced in gas pipeline routing and environmental assessment, having worked for Bord Gais on the 335km Gas Pipeline to the West from Dublin to Galway / Limerick in 2002.


They will work in partnership with Shell E and P Ireland Limited (SEPIL) to facilitate a modified pipeline route with landowner agreement and community acceptance.
Corrib last week held a series of open days in Castlebar and Ballina offering information on the project as well as specific areas such as the terminal and pipeline.
The Open Days were the first steps in public consultation around finding a new route for the onshore pipeline.
Over the coming months RPS and SEPIL will hold further public meetings to focus on the pipeline. This will be the subject of further announcements in the coming weeks.
