EXPANDED GAS FACILITY ON STREAM AT THEDDLETHORPE
The U.K.'s top energy official has inaugurated an expanded Theddlethorpe gas terminal on the Lincolnshire coast. The inauguration by Energy Minister Tim Eggar took place Nov. 11, 21 years after the site first received North Sea gas. The 2.6 bcfd expanded terminal processes gas arriving through four pipelines from 12 offshore fields. Average processing rate is expected to be 1.4 bcfd, or one fourth of Britain's demand.
