Grangemouth company Ineos apologises to residents over imminent flaring possibility
Grangemouth-based petrochemical giant Ineos has issued an early apology to residents who live near its Kinneil facility due to the possibility of flaring.
The company is set to begin maintenance work at the site next week as part of planned changes to its oil and gas flow.
A spokesperson said: “As we manage a planned change in the flow of oil and gas from off-shore installations connected to our pipeline system, there will be periods of controlled elevated flaring the Ineos FPS Kinneil terminal.
“This will be evident during the first half of next week (commencing April 19). We will make every effort to minimise the duration and level of the flaring.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause our local neighbours and thank you for your patience.
“We are committed to informing our local community and those who live and work nearby of our activities that may result in flaring.”
