This letter is the final decision of GEMA on a cross-border cost allocation (CBCA) application made by Shannon LNG  for a Project of Common Interest (PCI).

The decision is that Ofgem has agreed that all costs should be allocated to Ireland.

The letter provides the context and analysis of the CBCA application as well as the reasons for the decision. This precedes a coordinated decision on the CBCA application. The other parties to the Coordinated CBCA decision are the Commission for Energy Regulation (CER) and the Utility Regulator of Northern Ireland (URNI). The Coordinated CBCA decision is included as Annex 1 to this letter.
