Dear Mr Sabido,
 
I refer to your Access to documents request below registered as GESTDEM
2017/4724.
 
In the indicated period from January 2016 till March 2017, concerning the
Shannon LNG terminal the Directorate-General for Energy had contacts
within the context of the Projects of Common Interest process (PCI
process).
 
Under the PCI process, the Shannon LNG terminal as a PCI project on the
2nd PCI list (as project 5.3) and as a candidate project for the 3rd PCI
list, is part of the so-called North-South Gas Interconnections in Western
Europe (“NSI West Gas”) Priority Corridor and the related Regional Group.
The NSI West Regional Group meetings took place on the following dates: 2
February; 27 May; 22 September; 8 November and 12 December of 2016 and on
15 February of 2017.
The related documents and list of meetings can be found online in the

Dear Energy,

Thank you for the initial offering.

Can you please confirm that this means you've not met, spoken to or corresponded with anyone (another EU institution, a third party e.g. the project promoter or a national government) about the Shannon LNG terminal outside of these meetings?

In my request, I explicitly ask for a list of meetings, minutes, and all correspondence "between DG Energy and other European Union bodies and/or third parties on the Shannon LNG terminal and connecting pipe between January 2016 and 30 March 2017".

If this is the case, then I can close the file, but if it is not the case, please send through any other meetings, minutes and/or correspondence relating to the Shannon LNG terminal and connecting pipe.

Yours faithfully,

Pascoe Sabido

Dear Energy,

Can you please answer the questions I posed directly:

"Can you please confirm that this means you've not met, spoken to or corresponded with anyone (another EU institution, a third party e.g. the project promoter or a national government) about the Shannon LNG terminal outside of these meetings?"
- can you confirm or deny?
- if there are other meetings where the Shannon LNG terminal was discussed with other EU institutions or third parties, including industry lobbyists and ENTSO-G (the meeting doesn't have to be exclusively about the terminal) then please provide a list of them and minutes from them

"In my request, I explicitly ask for a list of meetings, minutes, and all correspondence "between DG Energy and other European Union bodies and/or third parties on the Shannon LNG terminal and connecting pipe between January 2016 and 30 March 2017"".
- can you provide all correspondence regarding (which you've not done)

Yours faithfully,
