Day dreamin'...: Shell vow to continue work

<?xml:namespace prefix = rte ns = ''urn:rte-search'' />
Shell Ireland said today it still remains fully committed to developing the Corrib Gas Field off the Mayo coast.
However, it said it has no plans to bow to public pressure to build an offshore terminal or change the route of a controversial onshore pipeline.
The company says it is working to address the safety concerns of local landowners and it welcomes what it describes as 'an increased level of co-operation' between all sides over the past two weeks.
It has also announced that work will begin next week on dismantling a section of the pipeline which was welded without the consent of the Department of the Environment.
