Sullom already produces Gasoline as a by product of the fractionation process onsite. There are no facilities for the matering or storage of the Gasoline so it is reinjected into the stabilised crude.

Are you sure about that? I used to work there and I don't remember anything about that.

It's a standard fractionation process. The gas and hydrocarbon liquids that are evolved during the stabilisation of the crude are separated into their various fractions by the fractionation columns. Methane & Ethane are used as fuel gas, Propane & Butane are stored, the remaining hydrocarbons are re-injected into the stabilised crude.

Presumably its not cost effective to handle the gasoline.
