Port of Peterhead

Peterhead is a key oil and gas supply base, second only in Scotland to Aberdeen. Oil and gas related traffic represents 90% of overall commercial traffic (ie 45% of total traffic with the balance being fishing related activity). Activity is split between logistics operations and subsea, with a growing business associated with handling decommissioning of subsea infrastructure.

Future Development Plans

£51m harbour development ongoing for completion in early 2018. This will provide an additional 180 metres of deepwater, sheltered berthing for commercial vessels and an extensive laydown area adjacent to Smith Quay. Various initiatives and investments are planned to provide additional services and facilities to service the decommissioning market.
