Petrochemical giant Ineos – which operates facilities in Grangemouth – has announced net profits of £472 million.

After posting a net loss of £226 million back in 2020, the firm has reportedly soared to record profits of almost £500 million in 2021.

Ineos stated it benefited from the average gas prices rising by 264 per cent to 91p per therm during the period and prices are said to have grown further since then.
