Petrochemical factory at night. Smokestacks and buildings of a petrochemical factory lit up on a moonlit night. This is a chemical factory where oil is used as a raw material for a wide range of products. These factories are usually sited near to an oil refinery, allowing the refining of the oil to be adjusted to suit the requirements of the factory. One of the major products made from oil is plastic. Other products include materials like asphalt, which contains bitumen. This is the Kirishinefteorgsintez (KINEF) petrochemical factory. Photographed in March 2006, in Kirishi, in the St Petersburg region of Russia.
