ABOUT THE PROJECT:
The Bacton Gas Terminal is a complex of six gas terminals within four sites located on the North Sea coast in North Norfolk near Paston and between Bacton and Mundesley.
The Shell terminal, the most easterly of the three, receives gas and condensate from three offshore pipelines. These are a 55.7 km long 30-inch pipeline from the Leman 49/26AP offshore installation; a 106 km long 30-inch pipeline from the Sean PP installation; and a 73 km 24-inch pipeline from the Clipper PT installation. The terminal also receives gas from the 474 kilometres (295 mi) long 34-inch SEAL Pipeline, which transports gas from the Shearwater and Elgin-Franklin gas fields in the Central North Sea. The SEAL Pipeline is the longest on the UK Continental Shelf. The Shell plant has a gas treatment capacity of 900 MMSCFD (million standard cubic feet per day) and a condensate stabilization capacity of 8,000 barrels per day (1,270m3/day). The gas hydrocarbon dewpoint is achieved by propane refrigeration. Truck loading facilities for condensate were originally provided. It employs 46 people and began operations in 1968. The BBL Pipeline terminal became operational in December 2006 and is located within the Shell terminal. The BBL terminal is operated, but not owned, by Shell.
