The Supreme Court has rejected the promoter resource of the Castor gas plant against the decision to dismantle it. The judges have rejected the appeal filed by Escal UGS against the decision of the 2019 Council of Ministers for lack of active legitimacy. For the Supreme Court, the promoter is no longer affected by these decisions “once it has voluntarily renounced the exploitation of the aforementioned underground storage and that the concession has been declared extinct. ”
The Castellón Court acquits the defendants of the Castor project of a crime against the environment
The company, owned by ACS and the Canadian company Escal, brought before the third room the decision of the Council of Ministers to dismantle the gas warehouse located off the coast of the Castellón town of Vinaroz. This executive agreement “put an end to the hibernation of the« Castor »underground storage facilities, agreeing to dismantle them and order the sealing and definitive abandonment of the wells.”
The court dismisses the appeal without going into the merits, understanding that the company does not have standing to question the agreement of the central executive.
