Outage of UK’s Forties Pipeline System

  • North Sea Forties crude diffs edged lower on Tuesday, after flows through a major pipeline ramped up following a brief outage earlier in the week.
  • Forties Pipeline System operator BP said flows of Fortes through the system were increasing after a brief outage on Sept. 4, but declined to give an estimate of how much they had risen or when they would be back to normal.
  • Flows through FPS are usually around 480,000 bpd.
