Britain's Forties Oil Pipeline Unexpectedly Shut

Posted by February 7, 2018

Britain's Forties oil pipeline was shut on Wednesday after the unexpected closure of a feed control valve connecting to the Kinneil gas plant, traders and an Ineos note to customers said.
 
A spokesman for Ineos, the pipeline operator, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
 
The pipeline was previously shut in mid-December last year for about three weeks after the discovery of a crack.
