CORRIB GAS EQUIVALENT TO JUST 5 YEARS' WORTH OF IRISH GAS CONSUMPTION
-- '60% of Irish gas needs' figure reported today is highly misleading --
The gas estimated to be in the Corrib field is equivalent to the amount of gas consumed in Ireland every five or six years.
News media have today been reporting that Corrib "will supply 60% of Ireland's gas needs". This is highly misleading.
What Shell has, in fact, claimed is that "at peak production", Corrib will supply 60% of our gas needs.
Shell to Sea have called a Day of Action for Friday 23rd September in Mayo to protest against Shell commencing work on the onshore section of its pipeline. Please make every effort to attend this day of action as we are at a critical time in the project. There will also be a work day on the Rossport Solidarity Camp on Saturday 24th September and a Shell to Sea National Meeting on Sunday 25th.
