It could have been worse...
I'm pretty sure we used to deliver product there and there was talk of building a LNG plant.
Now that would have provided fireworks for all.
We have a few structures like that on the low road to Bo'ness from Grangemouth.
My late F-in-L told me if they went up....the concussions would take out homes for a 4/5 mile radius.
No idea what is contained within but he did as he worked the marshalling yards in the middle of them.
Happened before my time in the Armpit but I do recall it being talked about.My visit was before the offshore O&G took off in Ghana - it was for a very well known service company that was looking for alternatives to Nigerian ports (for Nigerian projects).
Ghana is Rolls Royce compared to the Trabant that is Nigeria. Or at least it used to be.
Do you remember the Ikeja ammo dump explosion - looked like an atomic bomb had ND'd? Curiously though, more deaths from drowning than other causes when they ran away and jumped into a canal:

Just don't mention Buncefield.I think that in the case of the Permex plant it ignited rather than exploded - if the fuel-air mixture had been right there could have been a huge blast. Same with many gas plants.
I must say though, I'd trust the safety standards in Blighty more than Mexico
I expect the BBC will call it as a result of a white, male, tory(scum), brexit supporting, right wing, climate change denier and if there was a woman running the port it would never have happened.
Heaven forbid they fertilise the land and work....
A bit facetious I know but with 80%+ imports to zero exports (im hearing on the news), are they just living on foreign aid?
Surrey Roads Department beat him to it. Parked the van, shovelled some gravel out the back and drove off.A chap from Cheshire East Roads Dept has been despatched to help with the repairs. He’ll stamp in a couple of shovel fulls of left over tarmac and retire to his van to smoke rollies and scarf a few Chatwin’s pies.
You'll never even know anything happened once he’s done.
