The £300 million Goldeneye project, in which Centrica Energy is a co-venturer, was opened by Princess Anne today.

She was star guest at a special celebration to mark the success of the Shell-operated venture in the Outer Moray Firth, 100km north of St Fergus.

The event, attended by Centrica Energy’s head of development and joint ventures Peter Cole, was held at Shell’s St Fergus gas terminal, where the hydrocarbons from the field reach shore through a 105km pipeline.

The Princess Royal visited the control room at St Fergus and met many of the team who worked on the venture.

Tom Botts, chief executive of Shell Exploration and Production in Europe, said: "We are convinced she will be impressed by the ability and sheer dedication of the teams who have worked so hard on the venture."

Centrica Energy has a 4.5 per cent stake in the project. Shell has 49 per cent, Esso 39 per cent, and Paladin 7.5 per cent. First gas came through last month.

Goldeneye will provide around three per cent of the domestic gas for the UK. It is the first time gas has been brought ashore from the Outer Moray Firth area.
