This is Rigged activists are at the Ineos refinery in Grangemouth, Fife, and the Nustar Clydebank oil terminal in West Dunbartonshire.
They claim to have stopped the oil from leaving the sites and could be seen protesting at the gates, sitting on pipes and on top of a tanker.
The campaign group posted on Twitter: “Grangemouth supplies 90% of Scotland’s oil. We have stopped oil leaving this site, as well as the Nustar terminal in Clydebank. We have no intention of stopping.
“Groups of people are currently occupying pipelines and a fuel silo and blocking terminal gates, while another group has immobilized a car park full of tankers at the Grangemouth facility. No fuel can leave the sites as long as they are occupied.
The campaign group added: ‘The action is the first in a series of backed actions, in which the group has pledged to shut down Scotland’s oil industry.
The group called on the Scottish government to implement a just transition for oil and gas workers “instead of helping billionaires like (Ineos owner) Jim Ratcliffe. Dinnae fash yersel (don’t worry), Jim, we’re not going anywhere.
Police were called to both sites and Ineos said the Grangemouth terminal had been ‘temporarily closed to traffic’ for safety reasons.
An Ineos spokesperson said: “We are aware of a number of protesters at the Petroineos Road Terminal in Grangemouth.
“We have mobilized our incident management team and are liaising with Police Scotland. The protesters’ action is confined to a small area of the site and our manufacturing operations are unaffected.
“We urge protesters to consider their safety, that of our colleagues and the wider community. Our primary concern is always safety. We are taking steps to ensure the safety of everyone involved and have temporarily closed the traffic terminal.”
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We are aware of a number of protesters at the Road Tanker Terminal at the Ineos site in Grangemouth. There is also a small group meeting at the oil terminal in Rothsay Dock, Clydebank. The officers are present. »
Nustar has been contacted for comment.
