Teesside Gas Processing Plant to Process Gas from Stella/Harrier Development

23rd November 2012

Teesside Gas Processing Plant Limited (TGPP) is pleased to announce that its affiliate, Teesside Gas & Liquids Processing has entered into an agreement with the owners of the Stella/ Harrier fields to provide gas processing services to the Stella/Harrier development.

The Stella/Harrier fields are located in the Central North Sea in Block 30/6 in the Greater Stella Area. The project is operated by Ithaca Energy with partners Dyas UK Limited, a long established privately owned North Sea oil and gas producer, and Petrofac, a leading international service provider to the oil and gas industry.

The project will be developed using the FPF-1 floating production vessel with gas exported to the Teesside Gas Processing Plant via the 404 km 36” Central Area Transmission System (CATS) pipeline. Hook-up and commissioning of the FPF-1 vessel is expected in 1H 2014.

Andy Heppel, Chief Executive of TGPP said:

 “We are very pleased to be working with Ithaca Energy and its partners on this exciting project in the Greater Stella Area which we believe will create a new hub in this very prospective region of the Central North Sea. Developments such as Stella/Harrier underline the continuing potential of the North Sea and are being made at a time of record investment in the UK’s offshore industry”.



Teesside Gas Processing Plant Limited (TGPP) owns the Teesside Gas Processing Plant at Seal Sands which processes gas on behalf of a number of owners of North Sea fields. For fields located in the Central North Sea, gas arrives at the plant via the 404 km Central Area Transmission System (CATS) pipeline. The plant will also shortly have the capability to process gas from the northern portion of the Southern Gas Basin via the soon to be commissioned Breagh Pipeline System.  Processed gas is delivered to the National Transmission System or to local Teesside industrial users  In processing the gas to sales gas quality, the plant also produces up to 2,000 tonnes per day of natural gas liquids in the form of propane, butane and natural gasoline which are delivered to local petrochemical users on Teesside.

The plant is operated on behalf of its owners by the px Group (www.pxlimited.com).
