Shell St Fergus Gas Plant
The Shell St Fergus gas plant near Peterhead in Scotland fulfils an important role in meeting the UK’s energy needs by processing oil and gas that comes in from many offshore platforms and fields in the North Sea. The plant processes gas for supply to the national grid for power generation, and it extracts and separates natural gas liquids (NGL) for export by onshore pipeline to the Shell Fife NGL plant in Mossmorran, Fife.
