NorSea Group opens a new Marine Gas Oil facility at Peterhead Port
NorSea Group UK (Ltd) has completed Phase I of its multi-million pound investment at its Shore Base within Peterhead Port with the opening of a new custom-built Marine Gas Oil (MGO) facility on Smith Quay, the company said in its press release.
Two MGO tanks, which hold a combined total of 3000m3 of fuel, are now operational. This represents an expansion in the range of services currently provided directly to clients by NorSea Group at Peterhead as project support and supply vessels can now be fuelled directly at the quay.
Phases 2 and 3 of NorSea Group’s expansion plans at Peterhead also include development of reclaimed land adjacent to Smith Quay, the construction of a mud plant and slops recovery tanks. When complete, NorSea Group UK will have a total of 58,000m2 of laydown area and 350m of berthing between the two quays enabling them to accommodate E&P logistics contracts and even larger projects for subsea, decommissioning and renewable work. NorSea Group clients will have access to a full range of base and logistics services at Peterhead, all managed on their behalf through a single point of contact.
