Kinneil terminal
Kinneil terminal
At the end of a pipeline network from the Forties oil field in the North Sea is the Kinneil Terminal. This takes the first steps towards refining, gases are separated off, water and hydrogen sulphide removed before the crude oil is exported for further refining elsewhere, or refined at Grangemouth across the Avon.
The plant was flaring, hydrocarbon gases being burnt off, probably prior to a shut down of part of the plant. The gases are mixed with steam before ignition, this apparently reduces the noise, but it was still a very loud process.

The hill beyond Grangemouth is Ben Ledi.
