Total E&P UK tweeted early Tuesday that it has suffered an unplanned outage at its St Fergus gas terminal north of Aberdeen, Scotland. The firm's Twitter account reported that the outage means that it is losing the equivalent of five million cubic meters (177 million cubic feet) of gas per day.
The St Fergus gas terminal is a set of four gas processing plants that receive approximately 20 percent of the UK's gas from several gas fields in the North Sea.
The news comes just two weeks after Total restarted production at its Elgin/Franklin platform after it had been out of action for almost a year following a major gas leak there on March 25, 2012.
