New call for scrapping of Corrib gas project

The Shell to Sea group campaigning against the controversial Corrib gas pipeline in Co Mayo has reiterated its call for the project to be abandoned.The move follows a critical report from the Centre for Public Inquiry last week.The report said the proposed Corrib pipeline could pose an unacceptable risk to local residents if it exploded while operating at extremely high pressures.Shell to Sea wants gas from the Corrib field to be pumped to an offshore terminal rather than directly onshore.In a statement today, it accused Shell and the Government of gambling with people’s lives.
