Ineos suspends shutdown of North Sea pipelines

By Matt Farmer

Pipeline operator Ineos has suspended its planned summer shutdown of the Forties Pipeline System. It said planned engineering during the require gatherings of workers, which should be avoided during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

It has written to all customers, telling them the pipeline will not shut down on 16 June as planned. Instead, the shutdown will happen in August, at the earliest.

In a statement, Ineos said it was mindful of the benefits of the work being carried out, and the risks if it was not. However, it said customers “overwhelmingly” encouraged the postponement of work.
