Shell U.K. Limited would like to advise our local communities that from Wednesday 11th June, Shell will be carrying out planned inspection work on the ground flares for approximately six weeks. SEPA has been informed and the work will be carried out to meet inspection regulations.
There are no planned activities that require above normal flaring levels during this period, and any flaring requirements will be via the Elevated Flares.
At no time will there be any danger to the local communities or the personnel working at the plant.
We would also like to apologise for any inconvenience or concerns in advance that this may cause.
Note on SEPA Website
V-7003, ground flare liquid knock out drum, will be taken out of service from Wednesday 11th June to carry out its regulatory 16 year inspection. This will result in the unavailability of both ground flares, A-7005/A and a-7005/B. The duration for the outage will be in the order of approximately 6 weeks. During this time we will take the opportunity to overhaul A-7005/A. This allows us to minimise future outages on return to service of V-7003.’
