Our History

The Port of Nigg has a proud legacy spanning back more than 40 years


Established in 1972 the Nigg fabrication yard was custom-built to service Scotland's emerging oil & gas industry. Approximately 70 hectares of land were reclaimed from the eastern edge of Nigg Bay to create the yard and the Nigg Oil Terminal was added to the yard to support the Beatrice oilfield development in the mid 1970's.

Acquired by Global Energy Group in 2011, the company’s vision, rather than replicate Nigg's past, was to follow a more sustainable model in the future, catering for a balanced mix of contracts to be undertaken covering the marine, subsea, topside, nuclear and renewable sectors.
