Financial Resolutions 2022 - Budget Statement 2023 (27 Sep 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Carol Nolan: ...to prices. The Government remains committed to pursuing a precarious and unstable source of power in the form of renewables. It has signalled no clear switch to the funding of liquefied natural gas, LNG, or gas and oil exploration. All of this means that, through its own inaction, Government has prolonged the energy crisis for households and businesses and made it even more certain that...

Road Traffic and Roads Bill 2021: Report and Final Stages (21 Sep 2022)

Mattie McGrath: Yes, and lithium. Where are these mined from? The Minister has issues and hang-ups with fracked gas and bringing oil in from Barryroe. He has issues about LNG storage. Does he not mind child labour? I am shocked and appalled by the Members in this House who will not even refer to it. Child labour is used to mine cobalt for these batteries. The children are seven and eight years of age....

Screening of Third Country Transactions Bill 2022: Second Stage (21 Sep 2022)

Michael Collins: ...in west Cork, which are closing down nearly half of the week already, and we are only in September. Jobs are vital. I know people have come here with great ideas. They want to start a floating terminal in Cork for LNG, which is desperately needed in this country, but the Minister, Deputy Ryan, is kicking the can down the road and putting jobs in serious jeopardy. It is the same with...

Energy Security: Motion [Private Members] (21 Sep 2022) See 6 other results from this debate

Bríd Smith: There is no threat to our gas supplies from Britain. Reliance on Britain would only be replaced by reliance on North American fracked gas or LNG from Qatar or another similar dictatorship. I am in favour of eliminating our reliance on British and North Sea gas. The quicker we do it the better but we should not replace it with reliance on a different source of oil or gas. The war in...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Natural Resources (20 Sep 2022)

David Stanton: ...me it is worth considering and examining acquiring a floating storage regasification unit attached to the end of the pipeline that could store gas that could be hooked into our system. It would be LNG that did not come from fracking. It would not increase the amount of gas we use but would give us some insurance in the event of the other supplies being reduced.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: EU Meetings (20 Sep 2022)

Eamon Ryan: ...1 November deadline set in the gas storage regulation. There was a fifth issue we discussed in the earlier session, looking at what measures we could take on global gas markets, particularly LNG markets, where we could use our purchasing power, perhaps in co-ordination with other countries, in Asia or elsewhere, to try to help reduce market prices that way as well. That did not...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh - Priority Questions: Energy Policy (20 Sep 2022) See 5 other results from this debate

Bríd Smith: New Fortress Energy has set up the Shannon LNG Limited company and paid Kerry County Council more than €4 million as a development contribution for widening the road to Tarbert, €2 million of which was paid even before the planning permission application was lodged. The question then is whether Kerry County Council now owes this money and whether it is liable to pay it back to...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Energy Policy (20 Sep 2022)

Eamon Ryan: ...2021. The policy statement provides that, pending the outcome of the review of the energy security of Ireland’s gas and electricity systems, it would not be appropriate for the development of any LNG terminals in Ireland to be permitted or proceeded with. As set out in the National Energy Security Framework, which was published in April 2022, a review of the energy security of...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Energy Policy (20 Sep 2022)

Eamon Ryan: The Government's position on LNG is set out in the Policy Statement on importing fracked gas which was published in May 2021. The policy statement provides that, pending the outcome of a security of supply review, it would not be appropriate for the development of any LNG terminals in Ireland to be permitted or proceeded with. As set out in the National Energy Security Framework,...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Energy Production (20 Sep 2022)

Eamon Ryan: ...gas than other European Countries. The UK’s gas supply comes from indigenous supplies, via pipelines from Norway, interconnectors with Belgium and the Netherlands and through imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG). As production from the Corrib gas field declines, our import dependence on natural gas from the UK will increase in the near term. In light of the Ukraine crisis, the...

Security of Electricity Supply: Motion [Private Members] (15 Sep 2022) See 7 other results from this debate

Cathal Berry: ...pumping it into the caverns and extracting it and selling it on the market in winter when the gas was expensive. The concept is sound and makes sense. Second, I refer to liquified natural gas, LNG. I appreciate the Minister and his party have concerns about LNG but I think those concerns are surmountable. We can put in check and quality control mechanisms to ensure that it is not...

Measures to Assist with Household Bills: Motion [Private Members] (14 Sep 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Danny Healy-Rae: ...Kinsale could be probed further. Some 200 million barrels of gas and oil could be drilled out of Barryroe. The Government pays no heed to that. It refused, point blank, planning permission for Shannon LNG and the Minister is against it. That is criminal. People on the road are paying the amount of tax they are paying and then the Minister suggests that one car would do everyone in a...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (14 Sep 2022)

Mattie McGrath: ...point-blank refusal to cap the prices and take on the utility companies. The Government has refused to bring any of our own oil onshore. The Government promised to bring in liquefied natural gas, LNG, during the last election. It has totally ignored the plight of the public. There is a perilous situation for many families. Schools and small and medium-sized businesses cannot keep...

Seanad: Energy: Motion (14 Sep 2022) See 3 other results from this debate

Michael McDowell: ...not be explored. I accept the proposition enunciated by the Minister in 2007 that we should maximise exploration in order, as far as we can, to have a degree of energy security.On the Ballylongford LNG proposal, I am not particularly tied to LNG coming from one part of the world or other. It does not matter to me whether it comes from the Gulf, Texas or wherever. I just want to be sure...

Committee on Budgetary Oversight: Updated Economic and Fiscal Position in Advance of Budget 2023: Discussion (7 Sep 2022)

Neasa Hourigan: Would liquefied natural gas, LNG, be one?

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Energy Supply and Security: Discussion (30 Aug 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Eamon Ryan: ...Government started to reduce the flow of gas into Europe. At the same time, there was also an increase in gas prices because there was huge demand in Asian markets for liquified natural gas, LNG, and that saw vessels going to Asia rather than Europe. European energy markets then started to rise. We started to be aware this time or last year or earlier that this price rise issue was...

Green Hydrogen Strategy Bill 2022: Second Stage [Private Members] (14 Jul 2022)

Ivana Bacik: ...and the work the Government is doing in this area. If we can build out such a strategy, it will allow us to become a green hydrogen exporter in place of a fossil fuel and liquefied natural gas, LNG, importer. This will have substantial benefits for us and in terms of achieving climate targets internationally. According to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland, SEAI, electricity...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Natural Gas Grid (14 Jul 2022)

Denis Naughten: 202. To ask the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment if his Department has given consideration to acquiring a floating LNG re-gasification terminal to be located in an Irish port close to the existing gas network; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [38863/22]

Circular Economy, Waste Management (Amendment) and Minerals Development (Amendment) Bill 2022: From the Seanad (13 Jul 2022)

Bríd Smith: ...what will be gas-fired emergency generators. When these arrive, the very fact of their existence and the need for them will be further used to justify support for, and the building of, liquefied natural gas, LNG, terminals here. All of these, needless to say, will have an impact on our emissions targets and on any hopes of cutting CO2 in the coming years to the level required by the...

Confidence in Government: Motion (12 Jul 2022)

Michael Healy-Rae: ...go into, or are already in, homeless accommodation. I have no confidence in the Government because of that. The Government did a massive U-turn on a promise it gave before the election on Shannon LNG. I have no confidence in the Government because of that. Coal is going to cost €40 per bag. The Government's answer is stop people purchasing turf that they might be able to...
