Safety and Maintenance
ExxonMobil operates within one of the world’s most regulated industries, and we work to the very highest safety and risk management standards across all our facilities - we simply would not be allowed to operate if we did not do it safely. Read about our Global approach here.
The Mossmorran complex has been a COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) designated facility since the day it opened – this is because the facility processes natural gas.
Monitored by the Health and Safety Executive, it indicates a strictly regulated facility where the operators are required to implement the highest of safety standards.

Safety is a value for us at FEP. We produce ethylene safely. Since the day we began operating we have never experienced a major incident and it is over a quarter of a century since any ExxonMobil team member experienced a lost time injury.
Fife Ethylene Plant is one of the most modern facilities of its kind in Europe.
But, just like any complex machinery – be it an aircraft, a ship, a power station or a car – the plant needs servicing, repair and upgrades throughout its life to maintain safety and reliability.
This is why we invest over £20m as well as 850,000 man hours every year on routine maintenance.
