A vital cog in the UK’s future energy supply
Petrofac was awarded the engineering, procurement supply, construction and commissioning contract for the 500 million standard cubic feet per day gas processing Shetland Gas Plant (SGP).
The SGP facilitates the transportation of gas from the Laggan and Tormore fields, 125 km northwest of the Shetland Islands, to the St Fergus Gas Terminal in Aberdeenshire, and into the national gas grid.
With an estimated 17% of the UK’s undeveloped oil and gas reserves located west of Shetland, the SGP is well located to support future energy needs in the UK. The site is adjacent to the original landmark Sullom Voe oil terminal, built in the 1970s to receive oil from the first wave of major North Sea oil discoveries.
