Questions on Promised Legislation (29 Jun 2017)

Michael Healy-Rae: On the programme for Government, the retention of the proposed Shannon liquefied natural gas, LNG, terminal as a project of common interest status, is of paramount importance. The proposed LNG project is vital to north Kerry and west Limerick. I want the Government to remain in line with the programme for Government. This project is of paramount importance and I would like the Government...

Seanad: Petroleum and Other Minerals Development (Prohibition of Onshore Hydraulic Fracturing) Bill 2016: Committee and Remaining Stages (28 Jun 2017)

Seán Kyne: ...between climate change on the one hand and natural resources on the other. Natural gas in particular is a transition fuel in terms of a transition to a low carbon economy. Senator Higgins mentioned the LNG terminal at Shannon and there are other issues we have to examine. Moneypoint, which is coal-powered, is one of them. Coal is relative cheap at present. It is a fossil fuel but it...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Decarbonising Transport: Discussion (20 Jun 2017)

...and it is extremely important that nothing is done to increase the cost base for them by adding in unrealistic options. I am not a technician but I have an issue with the difference between LNG and compressed natural gas, CNG, which has a much shorter range in a truck than LNG. Refuelling stations for gas in the UK are LNG so, while CNG would work extremely well in the local urban...

Nomination of Taoiseach (Resumed) (14 Jun 2017)

Michael Healy-Rae: ...a life-saving drug, Respreeza. People are suffering from Lyme disease. The Taoiseach-elect can help them. There are commitments in the programme for Government including an liquefied natural gas, LNG, project for north Kerry. That has to be delivered on. During the leadership election, the Taoiseach-elect said that he promised an awful lot to be done for self-employed people. An...

Seanad Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union: Engagement on Energy Matters (1 Jun 2017) See 3 other results from this debate

Mark Daly: ...Ireland and the supply of energy through Britain to here? Will the delegates supply that information to the Chairman because we are running out of time? I have a question about the Shannon LNG project, the 500 MW power station and the 28.3 MMscm of energy it will provide daily. It has the potential to be a stopping off point for US gas imports which would then be transferred around...

Leaders' Questions (8 Mar 2017)

Danny Healy-Rae: ..., all roadside hedges should be cut all year round. Many areas have suffered huge job losses, such as Castleisland, Kenmare, Cahersiveen and Tralee. All of north Kerry would benefit if the Shannon LNG project was allowed to go ahead by the regulator over whom nobody seems to have control. Rural Kerry has been affected by cuts of 53% to the Leader programme. Worse still, we have had...

Ned O'Sullivan: ...Bridget will be very happy and successful in her position. The Cathaoirleach and Leader will recall that I have mentioned the importance of the project on the Shannon Estuary for liquefied natural gas, LNG, on numerous occasions. I raised it quite recently and, at the Leader's request, I submitted a Commencement motion on it. I received a welcome reply from the Minister, Deputy Denis...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources: Brexit Issues (1 Mar 2017)

Denis Naughten: ...gas from the UK. The Oxford Institute report goes on to say that, if the existing arrangements with the UK, which is the cheapest way to provide security of supply to Irish consumers, are not preserved, an LNG regasification terminal might be needed. I agree that the potential benefits of importing LNG directly onto the island of Ireland, and also the role of natural gas storage, should...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Effect of proposed withdrawal of the UK from the EU on the Irish Energy Market: Discussion. (14 Feb 2017)

..., the UK, France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Norway, which is not a member state but very much an energy source for a lot of those countries, including the UK. I mentioned liquefied natural gas, LNG, earlier and there are large LNG facilities in the UK and Ireland is gas-interconnected to the UK. Undoubtedly, a close energy relationship with the UK in the future is a high priority and...

Seanad: Commencement Matters: Energy Regulation (8 Feb 2017) See 2 other results from this debate

Ned O'Sullivan: ...report. I referred to that last Thursday, fortuitously anticipating the Minister. I drew attention to the report. It is most fortunate, therefore, that we currently have in place the Shannon LNG project in north Kerry. This was first announced by Deputy Micheál Martin when he was Minister responsible for industry, almost ten years ago. It has advanced very significantly in the...

Denis Naughten: ...Ireland recently and an agreement was signed between Réseau de Transport d'Électricité, RTE, in France and EirGrid here about developing that project.

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources: Commission for Energy Regulation (29 Nov 2016)

Denis Naughten: ...tariffing. The rationale for the CER’s proposed reform was that if the then current regime were to persist, new sources of gas coming onstream such as Corrib, and possible liquified natural gas (LNG), would cause the price of gas to rise significantly for all Irish consumers, regardless of the source of the supply. Given our high dependence on gas for electricity generation this...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Change and Natural Resources: Estimates for Public Services 2016: Vote 29 - Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (21 Sep 2016)

Denis Naughten: ...light. We are in a very different world now, particularly from an energy and energy security perspective. We need to look again at issues such as Whitegate and potential liquefied natural gas, LNG, sites in the country in the context of the fact that much of our reserves up to now have been stored offshore and in the UK. The British exit from the European Union will have implications...

Energy Bill 2016 [Seanad]: Second Stage (Resumed) (28 Jun 2016)

John Brassil: .... I will discuss the mandate and important role of the Commission for Energy Regulation, CER, particularly in the case of a project very close to my heart in County Kerry, known as the Shannon LNG project. It was initiated in 2006 and involves an investment of €500 million to €1 billion to bring liquefied natural gas into Ireland for the first time. It was going exceedingly...

Questions on Proposed Legislation (23 Jun 2016)

Michael Healy-Rae: ..., be brought before the House? Yesterday, the Minister, Deputy Denis Naughten, met with a deputation. There is a commitment in the programme for Government to a liquefied natural gas, LNG, facility in the Tarbert-Foynes area. When will the Government make progress with regard to fulfilling the commitment it has given in the programme for Government regarding Ireland having a LNG...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources: Energy Regulation (1 Jun 2016)

Denis Naughten: ...(CER), which is independent in the performance of its functions. I have no direct statutory function in relation to liquefied natural gas projects, including specific projects such as the Shannon LNG project, which is a commercial private sector initiative. An LNG facility would provide additional security of supply to Ireland, in that it would bring diversity to Ireland's gas supply...

Climate Change: Statements (4 May 2016)

John Brassil: ...have no evidence of environmentally friendly public transport systems and we must tackle that. We must become more carbon-efficient. I have been trying to promote a project in Kerry for many years, the LNG project. While I acknowledge that it is not the most attractive, it would be a huge improvement on Moneypoint across the way, which is our biggest emitter of carbon. It is necessary...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport and Communications: Additional Uses of Natural Gas: Gas Networks Ireland (16 Dec 2015)

...in terms of an indigenous source of natural gas. Our position has never been stronger in that regard. There is a range of additional opportunities out there, including liquified natural gas, LNG, with storage that has to be built up. We will be looking at those opportunities also. From a security of supply viewpoint, we feel we are in a strong position, probably in a stronger...
