ExxonMobil Chemical Limited <br />Fife Ethylene Plant <br />Beverkae House <br />Mossmorran, Cowdenbeath <br />Fife, KY4 8EP <br />+44 (0)13 8373 7000 Tel <br />+44 (0)13 8351 5253 Fax <br /> <br /> <br />An ExxonMobil Subsidiary <br />Registered in England: No. 867162 <br />Registered Office: <br />Ermyn House, Ermyn Way, <br />Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 8UX <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />30th November 2018 <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Mr Ian Brocklebank <br />Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Edinburgh Office <br />Silvan House <br />231 Corstorphine Road <br />Edinburgh <br />EH12 7AT <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />Dear Mr Brocklebank, <br /> <br /> <br />Pollution Prevention and Control Act 1999 <br />Permit PPC/A/1013494 <br />Condition 4.3.14 <br /> <br /> <br />This letter serves to provide an interim report on progress towards the evaluation of <br />Best Available Techniques (BAT) for flaring required by PPC/A/1013494 Condition <br />4.3.13. <br /> <br />As discussed during the Mossmorran site inspection on Monday 26th November, the <br />BAT evaluation has considered how to prevent, and where that is not practicable, to <br />reduce emissions of noise, vibration and smoke associated with flaring consistent <br />with permit variation VN04 issued by SEPA on 13th June 2018. <br /> <br />Five separate working groups have been established to cover the full scope of the <br />assessment, incorporating ExxonMobil technical specialists, Shell technical <br />specialists and expert, third party consultants. Extensive and ongoing <br />communication with Shell FNGL is occurring to ensure alignment on forward plans <br />where there is operational overlap. <br /> <br />Progress to date has highlighted potential ground flare technologies and site based <br />techniques that may reduce and/or minimise noise, vibration and/or smoke from <br />flaring. <br /> <br />Further cumulative technique and technology assessment is required in order to <br />determine what combination results in the best overall environmental benefit. <br />
