PROCESSING TERMINAL

Processing capacity 34mcm

At the CATS terminal on Teesside, which is situated within a 29-hectare site, the pipeline gas is treated to remove contaminants (hydrogen sulphide and mercury), and metered. The gas is then routed to either the CATS gas processing trains, or to the adjacent Teesside Gas Processing Plant (TGPP).

The CATS gas processing plant on the CATS terminal comprises two gas processing trains, each with capacity of around 17 million standard cubic metres (600 million standard cubic feet) per day. CATS delivers gas directly into the National Transmission System, and liquid products are exported via pipelines to nearby 3rd party facilities for onward processing or storage.
