It takes place on Friday, and has been organised by Mossmorran Action group in response to what it says are “unprecedented levels of concern in the local communities and further afield.”

The group intends to invite representatives from SEPA, HSE, and ExxonMobil, as well as Roseanna Cunningham, Environment Minister, and Paul Wheelhouse, Energy Minister.

Invites will also go to local councillors and MSPs.

James Glen who chairs the action group, said: “Last week’s flaring at Mossmorran has given rise to unprecedented levels of concern in the local communities and further afield.

“People have many questions and anxieties going forward, and official communications – public announcements from Exxon and SEPA, and SEPA’s complaint form/hotline – do not allow for dialogue or the answering of questions.”

Mr Glen said the meeting would focus on regulatory matters to create better understanding of roles, responsibilities and limitations.

He added: “This will be our fourth public meeting. Our three previous meetings have been very well attended by residents, local and national politicians and the press.

“They have been effectively co-ordinated and managed to ensure a healthy debate in a safe space.!”

The meeting goes ahead at Lochgelly Town Hall on Friday from 7:00pm until 9:00pm
