The York gas field is located approximately 20 miles off the East Coast of Yorkshire, a joint venture between Centrica Energy & Centrica Storage to recover an estimate 106Bcf of natural gas. The YCW phase of the project was to prepare the existing Easington gas terminal to process the additional capacity from the York field. This involved disinvestment, modification & upgrades to existing plant, combined with the supply and installation of new processing equipment. The YCW phase was split into 10 separate sub-projects, inc. gas compression & recovery, nitrogen generation package, plant air compressor replacement, cross Humber pipeline restoration & emergency shutdown system capacity increase.
