Our response to coronavirus

Find out how we're working to keep the electricity and gas flowing reliably throughout the outbreak.

Shaping the future of the St Fergus Gas terminal

Stakeholders have told us it's a site of fundamental importance to the UK, as it currently provides flexibility, supports security of supply and supports access to the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) gas; helping to keep gas prices low.

The St Fergus gas terminal, which accepts gas from three sub-terminals, is currently one of the highest utilised sites on the national transmission system (NTS). 

The access to UKCS gas also allows access to oil production, another benefit to the UK economy.

The terminal has been in continuous operation for over 40 years and requires a level of investment to both re-life a number of assets on the terminal and (subject to establishing the future operation) make the compressors that receive gas from the North Sea Midstream Partners (NSMP) sub-terminal compliant with new environmental legislation.

Building on what stakeholders told us during the RIIO-2 process, we are have launched a formal consultation asking for stakeholder input to:

  • Identify any changes in stakeholder needs for the terminal

  • Seek views on including wider market impacts in our assessment

  • How to recover assumed funded works via charges
