The Forties Pipeline System (FPS) is an oil and gas transportation and processing system owned and operated by INEOS. The system utilises a network of sea and land pipelines to transport crude oil, associated gas and natural gas liquids (NGLs) from more than 80 offshore fields and the St Fergus gas terminals for processing at the Kinneil Terminal in Grangemouth.

At Kinneil the oil and gas are separated, with the oil returned to customers as Forties Blend at Hound Point or passed to the Petroineos refinery at Grangemouth for further processing. Gas and gas-products are transferred to the FPS Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) export facility or supplied to the adjacent INEOS petrochemical plant.
