About Braefoot Terminal

Located between St. David's and Aberdour, the tanker terminal at Braefoot Bay is a base for the export of liquefied petroleum gas. The gas is piped to an inland site direct from the North Sea, broken down to form ethane and then converted into ethylene, the basic hydrocarbon 'building block' of the petrochemical industry. the products are then piped the final three mile journey to the Terminal where they are fed into tankers and gas carriers for markets in Europe and the USA. The terminal is operated jointly by Shell Expro and Exxon.

In 2001 the overall tonnage handled at the terminal was 3.6 million tonnes.
