£500m Shetland gas sweetening plant gets planning permission

by Tom Morton -

BP's £500m gas sweetening plant at the Sullom Voe Oil Terminal in Shetland has received planning permission from Shetland Islands Council.

Also to be used by Total, which is close to completion of its own massive gas plant on an adjoining site, the BP project will take three years to build, employing 500 workers.

It is expected to last 25 years and will employ around 33 full-time workers when fully operational.
