We expect flaring to be taking place at ExxonMobil’s chemical plant and refinery on Jurong Island over the next few days due to an operational issue impacting the site. Please do not be alarmed. Flares are important safety devices used in refineries and petrochemical facilities, for excess hydrocarbon gases to be burnt off safely. We will make every reasonable effort to minimize flaring and we regret any inconvenience or concerns caused. Find out more about flaring.
