Sean Kelly MEPShannon LNG has been cited by the European Commission as a future strategic hub for Europe’s gas supply, according to MEP Sean Kelly.

The Ireland-South MEP and a delegation of fellow MEPs met with representatives from Shannon LNG and Shannon Foynes Port in Cork on Thursday.

The Fine Gael MEP says that the Shannon LNG project is now eligible for low cost financing from the European Investment Bank.

Further discussions will take place in the autumn when the European Commission publishes its strategy for future liquefied nitrogen gas supply, and MEP Kelly is adamant yesterday’s meeting is of huge interest to the delegation who will be key decision-makers in shaping EU policy.
