Project: Environmental Consultancy Services for Oil Terminal
Client: Conoco Phillips Bantry Terminal
Sector: Oil & Gas
Location: Ireland

Byrne Ó Cléirigh are environmental consultants to Conoco Phillips Bantry Terminal. Bantry Terminal operates an oil storage terminal on Whiddy Island, Co Cork. The terminal was constructed in the 1960s by Gulf Oil and it has a nominal storage capacity for 1.3 M m3 of crude oil. Ownership of the terminal was transferred to the Irish Government in 1986. In 2001 it returned to privatre ownership and today it is used for the long term storage of crude oil and other petroleum products.

Byrne Ó Cléirigh were originally appointed as consultants to the terminal in the 1990s to help obtain the various permits and licences required for their operations and to assist Bantry Terminal in complying with the requirements imposed by those consents. We acted as advisors to Bantry Terminal in their negotiations for a Foreshore Lease with the Department of the Marine and Natural Resources and assisted them in complying with the conditions set out in their Lease and in their Planning Permission. We continue to advise them on the regulatory implications of any proposed changes at the site.

Byrne Ó Cléirigh prepared Bantry Terminal's application for their Trade Effluent Licence and later, when the site came under the auspices of the EPA Act, we prepared their application for an Integrated Pollution Control (IPC) Licence. As part of the ongoing work to manitain compliance with the IPC Licence, our work with Bantry Terminals has included:

Development of an Environmental Management Programme for the Terminal;

Preparation of Annual Environmental Reports;

A study on fugitive emissions;

Development of a Landfill Operational Plan for the site;

An Environmental Liabilities Risk Assessment;

Seveso II Compliance Project.

Byrne Ó Cléirigh worked with Bantry Terminal to combine the various regulatory and licensing requirements into a comprehensive Environmental Monitoring Programme for Bantry Bay covering water column, mussels and sediments. We assisted Bantry Terminal in establishing the Bantry Bay Environmental Monitoring Group (EMG). Membership of this group includes representatives from Byrne Ó Cléirigh, Bantry Terminal, local fishfarmers and Regulatory Authorities.
