  • Deepwater entrance and berths (up to 14 metres) - no delays waiting for high water or berths 

  • Immediate access to trunk road network - avoiding quayside and traffic congestion 

  • Proximity to offshore locations and destinations - reducing steaming costs and time 

Peterhead Bay Harbour being the most easterly deepwater port on the Scottish mainland, lies close to the major oil and gas fields of the Northern and Central North Sea. This favourable location has led to the harbour being host to a major support base servicing the offshore oil and gas industry operating in these areas.

The port provides a comprehensive range of facilities to service the complete needs of the offshore oil industry's activities, from exploration through construction and hook-up to production. For as long as oil companies continue exploration, development and production activities in the North Sea and Atlantic regions, Peterhead is ideally placed, in terms of location and established infrastructure, to meet their service requirements. 

A total of 17 berths across two purpose-built oil support bases ensure that the harbour has the capacity to handle the demands of the offshore oil industry, 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Vessels do not suffer congestion delays waiting to enter the port or berth. Convenient access directly onto the A92 avoids all city related congestion for vehicles.

A number of investments by both the Authority and ASCO over recent years have focussed on improving the service offered to oil clients by reducing turnaround times and extending the working capabilities of the port.
