Safety Violations at Scotland Refinery

BP was fined £1m (approx. $1.4 million) for breaching safety laws at its Grangemouth, Scotland refinery. The company pleaded guilty to charges relating to two separate incidents at the complex in June 2000. In the first incident, a high pressure steam pipe broke, injuring a woman. In the second incident three days later, a break in other pipework caused the release of highly flammable vapor which led to a major fire.
