Energy firm Ineos has said full ramp up of the Forties will take longer than first stated as the firm looks to carry out repairs on the North Sea pipeline.

The current throughput of the Forties Pipeline System is 180 thousand barrels per day (mbd).

Ineos announced yesterday afternoon it would  “progressively reduce” the flow from its Forties pipeline.

Ineos said initially it anticipated unit at Kinneil would be out of full action until at least Tuesday, but this has now been extended with the repair “expected to take two to three days”.

Ineos said full restart is now expected sometime between Wednesday to Friday this week.

A spokesman for Ineos said: “Based on our current understanding the repair is expected to take two to three days. Our view at the moment is that we would restart train 3 sometime between Wednesday and Friday this week, allowing our customers to ramp up to full rates.

“Further updates will be issued as we progress.

“Ineos FPS apologises to its Customers for the inconvenience caused.”
