On TuesdayMonday, 7th April Shell Fife NGL at Mossmorran will be carrying out our annual Emergency Shut Down (ESD) tests.

This test will involve shutting down equipment and closing emergency shutdown valves. Unfortunately, this will result in some minor noise, and a small amount of flaring. This is nothing to be concerned about, it is a routine safety activity carried out every year.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
