The small group of Shell to Sea and Rossport Solidarity Camp protestors stopped workers from entering or exiting the building from about 7.30am.
A Shell spokeswoman confirmed there were company personnel already in the building and that some work continued.
The protestors were peacefully removed, without incident, shortly before noon, after a team of IRMS (Integrated Risk Management Services) security guards arrived. Earlier, retired Garda Supt Pat Doyle, now working for IRMS, had negotiated with the group.

Integrated Risk Management.
