Customers in the UK could be encouraged to switch gas suppliers after it emerged that Scottish and Southern Energy is to supply 500 million cubic metres of the substance in partnership with Statoil.
The energy supplier will provide natural gas during the ten-year contract, delivering it to its power station in Peterhead via the St Fergus gas terminal.
Alistair Phillips-Davies, generation and supply director at the energy company, commented: "Fuel supply contracts play a key part in helping us to meet our customers’ needs and contribute to the long-term stability of our energy portfolio.
"I am also optimistic that other opportunities will emerge that will allow us to continue to add to our mix of natural gas assets and contracts," he added.
The energy supplier has also announced that the first turbine on its Clyde onshore wind farm has started generating and exporting green electricity to the national grid.
