27-09-2016. Picture Michael Gillen. Firth of Forth. The shale gas carrier INEOS Insight makes its way to dock at Grangemouth. 
The first shipment of US shale gas arrives in the UK. A tanker carrying 27,500m3 of ethane from US shale fields is due to dock at Grangemouth, the refinery and petrochemicals plant owned by Ineos.
The company said the gas would replace dwindling North Sea supplies and secure the future of the plant's workforce.
Jim Ratcliffe, Ineos founder and chairman, said: "This is a hugely important day for Ineos and the UK. Shale gas can help stop the decline of British manufacturing."
