What is this?

Saw this in Newark right off the Garden State Parkway.

Looks like a rack of pressure vessels - is it in one of the refineries or chemical plants in the area?

Propane tanks mebbe? Hard to tell without context. What is the abandoned factory next door?

It was standing alone on a lot with just some rubble.

They're scraping the lot and that's the last thing left because it has to be handled with care.

I found it on local.live.search. It is at the corner of Grove Street and South Orange Avenue in Newark, New Jersey. The picture on Google Maps is older and there are more structures standing.
