Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) increasingly is a component of this strategy as Member States work to diversify supply sources and routes. LNG imports account for approximately 15% of the total EU gas market and currently...

Eamon Ryan: ...with the current recession's depressive impact on demand, is expected to contribute to a glut of gas supply in the next few years. This new gas supply has driven down US prices and reduced LNG imports to the U.S., which in turn have become available and increased supply in other markets. A key security of supply imperative for the EU, where over half of the gas consumed is from sources...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Energy Challenges: Discussion (29 Mar 2022)

Dr. Paul McGowan: Forgive me if I repeat myself. I go back to something I said in a previous appearance before this committee. When we talk about LNG, we are talking about gas security of supply and ensuring we have a secure transition to a zero-carbon future. This is the context within which we talk about LNG. We want a debate on the role of LNG in how Ireland secures its energy future...

Ceisteanna - Questions: Cabinet Committees (23 Jun 2021)

Mick Barry: The Taoiseach needs to ban LNG projects. All such projects are meant to be frozen pending an energy supply review. That decision came about under pressure from environmental campaigners and as a result of the growing awareness of the link between LNG and fracked gas and the extreme danger posed to our environment by fracking. However, the wheels have not stopped turning. We learned last...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (10 Jul 2019)

Richard Bruton: Individual applications are matters for the planning authorities. On the wider issue of whether LNG could contribute to energy security, there is no doubt that as we move away from and close down peat and coal production, security of supply of gas will become an issue. LNG is one of the options put forward to deal with energy security. Having access to LNG supplies also has support...
