SEPIL unequivocally rejects OSSL allegations
"SEPIL has a proactive community relations programme focused in Erris. This is normal and appropriate for projects executed by the Shell Group. For example, for a number of years, as a gesture of goodwill towards residents living closest to our construction sites in Erris, as well as to local businesses and suppliers, SEPIL distributed modestly priced hampers at Christmas time. The provision of hampers is a goodwill gesture which is commonly practiced by businesses all over Ireland. No support for the Corrib project was ever requested. In 2010, we decided to discontinue the practice of providing Christmas hampers, in favour of making a donation to local charities."
