SHANNON LNG h av e been granted a date for a High Court hearing over a judicial review they are seeking of the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) decision that would see them paying massive tariffs for a gas pipeline.
The company secured a hearing for February 25 next at the Commercial Court.
They are seeking a judicial review of the CER decision that would see them paying up to €50 million per annum to pay for gas pipelines they will never use. The CER believes that these tariffs have to be introduced to all operators in the Irish gas market in an effort to keep prices down for consumers.
Shannon LNG, however, maintain that the tariffs will see them supporting their potential competitors, Bord Gáis.
