Shell to Clear Mine From Near North Sea Gas Pipeline, IOD Says

June 21 (Bloomberg) -- Royal Dutch Shell Plc is preparing to clear an unexploded World War II-era mine from beside a North Sea pipeline system that carries around 10 percent of the U.K.’s natural gas to shore, the International Oil Daily reported, citing the company.

The Royal Navy had previously recommended that the British-made mine be left in place about 100 kilometers (62 miles) offshore near the Far North Liquids and Associated Gas System pipeline, the IOD reported today.

The development of new mine-clearing technologies since its initial discovery in 1993 has made its removal and disposal possible, the IOD said, citing Shell.
