Flotta Oil Terminal

The Orkney Islands Council has a duty under the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1999 (COMAH) to prepare an off-site plan for the Flotta Oil Terminal owned and operated by Talisman Energy (UK) Ltd.

The COMAH Regulations came into force on 1st April 1999, replacing the Control of Industrial Major Accident Hazards Regulations 1988 (CIMAH). The aim of the Off-site Emergency Plan is to limit the consequences to people working and/or residing on the island of Flotta. The plan was written by the Orkney Islands Council in consultation and with the co-operation of the site operators, the emergency services and the Flotta Community Council.

The Off-site Emergency Plan is available from the Related Downloads section of this page.
