James Glen, chair of Mossmorran Action Group, responded to today’s CAS 2018 results from SEPA:
“It’s no wonder Exxon has been given a poor rating by SEPA. This rating is only on their performance in 2018, when 2019 was much worse with the extreme flaring at Easter and the two, in HSE’s words, “catastrophic” boiler breakdowns in August which resulted in explosions.
Many people wonder why action against Exxon hasn’t been much harsher, particularly after last Thursday’s emergency flaring which was termedAngieMike “apocalyptic” across east Scotland.
It is disheartening to see Exxon appealing their poor 2018 rating. Rather than fighting regulators, they should be putting all their energies into complying with SEPA and HSE to the best of their abilities.”
