LONDON Oct 19 British oil major Royal Dutch
Shell (RDSa.L) has denied a report that it has withdrawn from
the UK wind energy sector by agreeing to sell its stake in a
project off the Blackpool coast to partners Scottish Power
SPW.PZ and Denmark's Dong Energy.
The Sunday Times said Royal Dutch Shell had agreed to sell
its stake in the 800 million pound ($1.39 billion) Cirrus Shell
Flat Array, a 250 megawatt project.
"This article is completely wrong. We have not sold our
stake," a spokesman for the group told Reuters.
However, he added that the project was under review because
of safety concerns for aircraft in the area.
"The three parties are considering the next step with regard
to the future of the Cirrus Array project due to unresolved
aviation concerns," he said.
