Shell U.K. Limited (Shell) and Esso Exploration and Production UK Limited, (an ExxonMobil subsidiary) are pleased to announce today (10 April) the commencement of a £350 million Rejuvenation Project that will extend the life of three of their onshore installations (the St. Fergus Gas to Liquids Plant, Fife Natural Gas and Liquids Plant, and Braefoot Bay Loading Terminal) to the year 2021 and will sustain feedstock supply to the Fife Ethylene Plant.

Whilst safeguarding 300 existing jobs at these locations the project will, in addition, require a further estimated 100 contractor personnel to be recruited during the project.

The project will be a contribution towards securing energy supplies to the UK over the mid to long term, and will continue to provide facilities where Norwegian gas and liquids can be processed and distributed.

Stewart Stevenson MSP will tour the Shell St Fergus gas plant during the day and speak with staff.

Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown will visit Mossmorran to unveil a plaque to celebrate the commencement of the project.

Safety remains our highest priority during this project and in our operations more generally. The Rejuvenation Project highlights how Shell is continually looking for ways to improve operational excellence.

John Gallagher, Vice President Technical, Shell Exploration & Production in Europe, said: “This is a prime example of Shell meeting the energy demand of the UK for today and in the future by extending the life of existing infrastructure and investing in the import of gas supplies. Shell remains committed to the UK and we hold a key strategic position in enabling security of energy supply to the UK through our core infrastructure.”

Robert Olsen, Chairman and Production Director, ExxonMobil International Ltd, said: "This project will contribute towards diversifying the UK's energy supplies by enhancing facilities to receive Norwegian gas, will extend the life of Shell and ExxonMobil's facilities in Scotland and will help to sustain feedstock supply to our ethylene plant in Fife."
