ExxonMobil Chemical Limited management would like to apologise to the local communities for any inconvenience or concern caused as a result of the flaring at the Fife Ethylene Plant, Mossmorran.
The flaring is the result of a process system upset on one of our compressors.
We are now working to restart the plant over the next couple of days and anticipate that the flaring will continue over the next 48 hrs.
At no time has there been any danger to the local communities and there is no reason to be concerned.
If you require any further information please contact Public Affairs on Tel 01383 737000.
