INEOS Forties Pipeline System statement
INEOS FPS confirms that a feed control valve closed at its Kinneil facility at around 10.20am today (Wednesday, February 7). Automated safety systems operated as expected to safely close the main pipeline system.
We have now identified the issue that caused this and are hoping to resolve it this evening. We then plan to start-up again overnight.
