The model of the fuel storage tank opens on a hinge to reveal a lighter inside. It was presented to Prince Philip when he opened the Esso Oil Refinery at Milford Haven in 1960. The refinery had the capacity to process 4.5 million tons of crude oil a year. The site is now occupied by the South Hook LNG Terminal.
