Gatehouse at Mossmorran
Gatehouse at Mossmorran
The ExxonMobile Chemical plant at Mossmorran on the edge of a mossy tract of land to the south of Cowdenbeath. Liquid gas is piped here from the North Sea, broken down to form ethane and then converted into ethylene. Developed since 1985 by a partnership between Shell and Exxon, the site's products are piped 4.8 km to the Braefoot Bay Marine Terminal NT1883 and fed into tankers and gas carriers for markets on the Continent and in the USA.
