Community Notice - Shell Fife NGL Plant

Planned Steam Outage

Friday, 21 October 2022





Dear community members,


I’m writing to let you know that we will be taking a planned steam outage at the Fife NGL plant from Sunday 23 – Sunday 30 October.


As you may be aware, we recently completed upgrades to our elevated flare stack, including the replacement of one of its flare tips and installing a combustion-monitoring camera.


We are continuing this investment in the plant’s equipment by upgrading the steam control system on the middle flare on our elevated stack.


Steam, which is used to minimise smoke and ensure the full combustion of the flare, will be unavailable while we complete this work.

I would like to assure the community that we have planned carefully for this steam outage and do not plan to use our elevated flare at this time, but in the unlikely case that we do, it may be smoky.


I apologise in case this may lead to any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding.


We have informed the regulator SEPA of this planned work.


Please contact us if you have any questions or comment. Our notices and contact details are also on the plant website.


Kind regards,

Craig Burnett
