Planning and Development (Liquefied Natural Gas - LNG) (Amendment) Bill 2022: First Stage (2 Mar 2022)

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (2 Mar 2022)

Alice-Mary Higgins: ...Minister for this, is very careful and thoughtful. Unfortunately, the motion debated in the European Parliament muddied the line between the EU and NATO and had some opportunistic inclusions of LNG and so on. That was unfortunate. I understand that most people voted with the motion anyway but it was unfortunate that those elements were included in a motion that needed to strongly focus...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Energy Policy (2 Mar 2022) See 2 other results from this debate

Brendan Griffin: ...told the Minister of State, Deputy Ossian Smith, not to blame the people of County Kerry or the rest of us if the lights go out. We have done everything that we can to try to progress the Shannon LNG proposal, for example. It has been going on for years now. I met the people of Ballylongford on Monday to discuss the issue again. There was hope that the Government would see sense. Now,...

An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (1 Mar 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Micheál Martin: ...and so on. That is not to undermine any other issue. I am just making the point. On Deputy Danny Healy-Rae's point, the Topical Issue Debate is available to him to raise the matter of Shannon LNG, if he so wishes. We work with Norway and the UK on gas supplies. We are very clear as a Government that gas is an essential transitional fuel to back up our efforts in renewables. That...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Departmental Correspondence (1 Mar 2022)

Eamon Ryan: In August 2021, an application was submitted to An Bord Pleanála for a project involving a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal. As Minister, I was listed as a prescribed body considered relevant by An Bord Pleanála to that particular planning application. My input to the planning application was made within this context and my submission set out the Government’s...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Natural Gas Imports (1 Mar 2022) See 1 other result from this answer

Eamon Ryan: ...three-quarters via the UK, which has diverse sources of supply. The UK’s gas supply comes mainly from indigenous supplies, via pipeline from Norway and through imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG).  In addition, the UK can also import via two gas interconnectors connecting the UK to Belgium and the Netherlands. Both the UK and Ireland both have far...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Energy - Ambition and Challenges: Discussion (1 Mar 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

...was made quite recently. The easiest way of handling hydrogen is in the form of ammonia. It is not a challenge to shipping to companies and is something they are well used to. They deliver LNG and oil around the world so this is just a different product. Converting a tanker from LNG to ammonia is minimal in terms of refurbishment or retrofit. The other issue to bear in mind is the...

Ceisteanna ó Cheannairí - Leaders' Questions (24 Feb 2022) See 2 other results from this debate

Leo Varadkar: ...if it was not for the climate crisis, for economic and security reasons, we need to wean ourselves off our dependence on fossil fuels. As the Deputy said, there is a planning application for an LNG terminal in Tarbert in north Kerry. I am familiar with that project, which is currently at planning permission stage. It is not supported by the Government but if it gets planning...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Energy Policy (24 Feb 2022)

Eamon Ryan: ...of the security of energy supply of Ireland’s electricity and natural gas systems, that is currently being carried out by the Department, it would not be appropriate for the development of any LNG terminals in Ireland to be permitted or proceeded with. The review is expected to be completed later this year. The findings of the review will be submitted to Government. While there...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Energy Policy (24 Feb 2022)

Eamon Ryan: ...of the security of energy supply of Ireland’s electricity and natural gas systems that is currently being carried out by the Department, it would not be appropriate for the development of any LNG terminals in Ireland to be permitted or proceeded with.  The Government policy statement on Security of Electricity Supply, published in November 2021, does not change what was set...

Security Situation in Europe: Statements (23 Feb 2022)

Danny Healy-Rae: ...for fertiliser, fuel and gas. It is disappointing to think that the Government and Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications has gone against a proposal to bring in gas by Shannon LNG. We could buy gas more cheaply from the West and not have to depend on the east.

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (23 Feb 2022)

Mattie McGrath: ...that supply of Russian gas? How many days worth of oil are stored in this country? Will the Government reconsider the closure of the peat plants in the midlands, and reconsider the liquified natural gas, LNG, plant, for instance, that would provide an alternative to the gas line that is coming in? The Government needs to look at other areas because we cannot just blindfoldedly sleepwalk...

Supplementary Budget for Rural Communities and Farmers: Motion [Private Members] (23 Feb 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Paul Murphy: ...fast throughout the cities and towns of Ireland. The other point I want to make is essential to this. I saw Patrick O'Donovan referenced as being on a radio station this morning saying we had to have Shannon LNG because the wind did not blow all the time etc. That is just a recipe for continuing with fossil fuel dependency. There should be no more fossil fuel infrastructure...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (23 Feb 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Ned O'Sullivan: ...of Government commitment and I am talking about my own party as well as everybody else. Next week we will get the definitive result from An Bord Pleanála on the Shannon liquefied natural gas, LNG, project, which I devoutly hope will get the go-ahead. The Government has indicated that it will accept An Bord Pleanála's decision. When it comes to the objectors, 99% do not...

Seanad: Address to Seanad Éireann by Members of the European Parliament (23 Feb 2022) See 3 other results from this debate

Ned O'Sullivan: ...especially on the issue of gas, which he has just referred to. I have great time for my Green colleagues in Government and they have educated me in many ways but they are wrong about gas and about LNG. I hope all the work Mr. Kelly, and myself and others, have done will come to fruition very soon when the planning is announced next week. I hope if the go-ahead and the green light is...

Carbon Tax: Motion (Resumed) [Private Members] (22 Feb 2022)

Bríd Smith: ...have tabled some of the most radical Bills before the House, including ending the extraction of oil and gas in this country, stopping the proliferation of data centres and banning liquefied natural gas, LNG, which the Minister and Minister of State sitting in front of me voted against not so long ago. We take the question of climate and the crisis very seriously. The point about carbon...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Climate Action: Scrutiny of EU Legislative Proposals (22 Feb 2022) See 3 other results from this debate

Christopher O'Sullivan: ...the proposals and strategy going forward. My fear is that we are potentially leaving two gates open, the first one being to grey hydrogen and the second to the importation of fracked gas through LNG infrastructure, in general. In his opening statement, Mr. Regan referred to the importance of gas storage in the context of energy security. There certainly has to be a place for gas...

Written Answers — Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment: Natural Gas Imports (8 Feb 2022)

Eamon Ryan: ...of the security of energy supply of Ireland’s electricity and natural gas systems, that is currently being carried out by the Department, it would not be appropriate for the development of any LNG terminals in Ireland to be permitted or proceeded with. While a project involving an LNG terminal may also include gas-fired generation, it is still an LNG terminal and, therefore, it...

Electricity Costs (Domestic Electricity Accounts) Emergency Measures Bill 2022: Second Stage (3 Feb 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Brian Leddin: ...Deputies across the House who spoke in this debate, I believe we can realise this opportunity quickly. We have no need to rely on building new fossil fuel infrastructure or nuclear energy. Whether it is LNG infrastructure or nuclear energy, those projects will take ten or 15 years to develop. We do not have that time. We can build up our renewable resources in that timeframe. I agree...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (2 Feb 2022) See 1 other result from this debate

Bríd Smith: We have a serious difference emerging between the Green Party and Fine Gael at least, as we are not sure of the Taoiseach's position, on the question of liquefied natural gas, LNG. The Minster for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Deputy Eamon Ryan, intervened with An Bord Pleanála and told it that under no circumstances should the Shannon LNG project be given planning...
