As reported by MayoNews and ShellToSea two week ago...

SHELL E&P Ireland will appear before Dublin Metropolitan District Court on September 5 next over an intense flaring incident at the controversial Corrib refinery on December 31 last, The Mayo News can confirm.

“The EPA contacted me in the aftermath of an Irish Times article last week about its prosecution of Shell and asked me was I aware that they were taking statements from local people about the flaring. They advised me that if there was anyone I knew who witnessed the flaring and wished to make a statement that they should do so,” Mary Corduff said.

“Shell being forced to pay a fine because of flaring won’t make the people of the area any safer,” she said.
Last January Shell stated that the New Year’s Eve flaring was ‘exceptional’ and that the company would ‘take all measures to minimise further occurrences’, which it said would be ‘intermittent in the coming days’ as first gas was brought ashore....
