So fellow petchem folk, I urge you to get on those planes with your petrodollars and petro-euros and come and visit us here in the UK. Bring your families too.

Check out the refinery at Fawley, then rent that cottage in Cornwall. Drop in on the refinery and polymer plants at Grangemouth, then tour those whiskey distilleries in the Scottish Highlands.

There’s never been a better time.
