Apart from having leading edge technology, supply chain expertise and unique infrastructure, Stanlow Terminals is also well-connected to various industry heartlands through mainline rail, port, roadways and pipelines (UK Oil Pipeline, Manchester Pipeline). Proxmity to the urban hubs of Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham offer additional competitive advantage to its position within one of the UK’s most industrialised regions.

Further development of 0.8 MTPA for ammonia storage and a 2 MTPA CO2 receiving facility will see Stanlow Terminals become the UK’s largest storage hub for new energies facilitating the UK’s energy transition.
