Members’ Business: Impact of Mossmorran Flaring – Auto Republish


Alex Rowley: Impact of Mossmorran Flaring—That the Parliament notes the
concerns that it considers are being expressed by growing numbers of Fife residents regarding the
increased incidence of flaring at the facility operated by ExxonMobil Chemical Limited and Shell at
Mossmorran, by Cowdenbeath, the most recent being between 23 and 25 March 2018;
understands that data provided by SEPA shows that ExxonMobil has flared 165,861 tonnes of gas
in 670 events between 2008 and 2016, while Shell has flared 21,162 tonnes in 753 events; further
understands that the two major incidents in June and October 2017 are under investigation by
SEPA with a view to possible enforcement action, and regrets the impact that it believes these 
episodes are having on the surrounding communities.
