A maintenance outage at Total’s St Fergus natural gas terminal was brought forward by a day to start on June 14 and will last for 16 days in total, the company said over the weekend in a regulatory note.

Works will result in a 6 million cubic metres/day loss of production from the terminal, Total said.

The maintenance was first announced on April 30 and was due to begin on June 15, resulting in a 7 mcm/day production loss.

The terminal receives and processes gas from more than 20 fields in the North Sea.
