All operational and safety systems at Gibraltar's new liquefied natural gas power station are currently being tested, as part of the terminal's on-going commissioning programme.

One of the tests, which was successfully carried out on Sunday, was of the systems in place to control pressure build-up in the terminal through the combustion of natural gas. This system, known as flaring, results in a small controlled flame.

Further tests of this type will continue.
