Ineos partially restarts Kinneil. Forties flows to be increased gradually

Ineos has partially re-started the Kinneil facility following the completion of the mechanical repair works on the Forties pipeline system.

Earlier this week, Ineos, the operator of the pipeline, said it expected to bring the pipeline and Kinneil terminal and gas processing plant progressively back to normal rates early in the new year.

The pressure testing is well underway and a small number of customers started sending the oil and gas through the pipeline at reduced rates as part of a coordinated plan that allows Ineos to control the flow and pressure in the system.

On Tuesday, Ineos said it partially re-started the Kinneil facility. Flows through the pipeline and Kinneil will be increased gradually as Ineos proves the system. There is currently increased flaring at the site as Ineos is bringing different streams on-line.

Ineos reiterated that, based on current estimates, it expects to bring the pipeline and Kinneil progressively back to normal rates early in the new year.
