The Fate of Shannon LNG?

    Badly needed for security of supply now that we have decided to abandon all future gas exploration off the coast. They could simply ban fracking sourced gas from being able to be imported through it.

    Has the project been reduced to a pipe dream for New Fortress? Or do you thing FFG would push for a u-turn?

    I recall last year it joined a list of essential EU infrastructure projects that meant it could circumvent the normal planning process. I thought the Green Party issue was all because of fracked gas. Plenty of countries ship standard gas around the world in LNG tankers.

    The sooner we have LNG and the M20 the better.

    Do you think the LNG would get planning permission? The M20 will be proceeding as planned, Ossian Smyth is losing the run of himself lol.

    A much needed project for this country and hopefully it still goes agead. Ireland could have been a massive petro chemical hub for europe but the hippies and socialists want us to be poor

    This project is now the most needed in the country at the moment and if the complete Richard Head bellend in charge of The Green Party is against it then it needs to be put to the people so they can have security of supply and not rely on the smile on or off Putin's face to heat their home this winter. Refuse fracked gas if you want, easy to do.
