The Group’s Infrastructure and New Energy business division is responsible for its onshore Sullom Voe Terminal (‘SVT’) and a number of offshore pipeline systems as well as supporting the Company’s purpose of providing creative solutions through the energy transition.
EnQuest’s existing operations at the Sullom Voe Terminal are uniquely positioned to act as a springboard for the Group’s new energy ambitions.
The Sullom Voe Terminal is one of the largest oil terminals in Europe. It is located at the northern end of the largest of the Shetland Islands, strategically positioned to receive production from both the east and west of Shetland producing areas. The asset is of strategic importance to EnQuest, receiving around one-third of the Group’s UK North Sea production.
This business division is responsible for strengthening and extending the longevity of existing operations by maintaining cost efficiency and securing new business as well as delivering our 10% emission reduction target company-wide. EnQuest’s Infrastructure and New Energy business will also seek to leverage the existing infrastructure at the terminal to unlock new infrastructure potential and develop renewable energy and decarbonisation opportunities through innovative commercial structures.
EnQuest operates a large number of in-field pipelines, risers and control umbilicals which support the efficient operation of our upstream and decommissioning asset base, offshore in the UKNS. When EnQuest acquired the operating interests in the Magnus asset and the onshore Sullom Voe Oil Terminal (‘SVT’) in 2017, the associated pipeline portfolio was also purchased. These pipelines are of strategic importance to EnQuest, our partners and to the UK energy sector.
EnQuest operates the Ninian Pipeline System on behalf of our joint venture of owners in which EnQuest has a part share. This pipeline transports crude oil from the Magnus and Ninian fields (and associated subsea tie-backs) to SVT as well as supporting the decommissioning activities for the Thistle and Heather fields. EnQuest wholly owns and operates the offshore East of Shetland pipeline system (‘EOSPS’) providing the route to market for West of Shetland gas, via Magnus, to the Northern Leg Gas Pipeline (NLGP). EnQuest operates the NLGP on behalf of joint venture owners in which EnQuest has a part share. This pipeline delivers natural gas from Magnus and West of Shetland assets for onward transportation via the FLAGS pipeline and into the UK National Transmission System.
