The home town of NauticOil is Grangemouth, a small but strategic location that hosts a large oil refinery that is connected by pipeline to North Sea directly and also has pipelines to the west of Scotland oil export terminal at Finnart on the River Clyde, near to HMNB Clyde at Faslane.

Grangemouth Oil Refinery

This oil refinery and associated petrochemicals, crackers and ethane import infrastructure plays a huge role in UK energy security and products everything from marine HFO to petrol, DERV, LPG, bitumen, and lubricating oils!

Taken together with the central position of Grangemouth – half way in between Glasgow and Edinburgh with large sea port and freight railway, it can quickly be seen that that it is not only good quality whisky that is made in Scotland!

Petroineos Finnart Terminal

We included a picture and a video about the complex here, although it certainly is not beautiful it is kind of impressive – running 24/7 and 365 days per year and able to process around 60% of the crude oil produced in the UKCS areas.
