Shell invests £300m at gas terminal

The energy giant Shell is to increase the amount of gas processed at a Norfolk terminal by 16% - securing its future for "Decades to come". The firm has spent £300m updating the plant at Bacton to allow 400 million cubic feet of gas to be processed. The extra capacity at the plant enables Shell to take gas from the Spirit Energy-owned Clipper South field, which is about 45 miles off the coast from Bacton. Processing at Bacton, on the coast near North Walsham, began in 1968 after Shell discovered one of the largest gas fields in the Southern North Sea. About a third of Britain's gas energy needs are supplied from the plant.
