Kerry MEP believes change in EU rules could boost chances for Shannon LNG

A Kerry MEP believes a change in EU rules could boost the chances for the proposed LNG terminal on the Shannon Estuary.

The European Parliament is now bringing in stricter controls on who owns and operates the gas pipelines that serve the EU.

Most of the natural gas Ireland uses comes from Norway, Russia and Algeria through pipelines.

Kilcummin native, Seán Kelly says there’s scope for competition from LNG terminals like the planned storage facility on the Tarbert Ballylongford landbank.
