Failure to complete and submit a request for an FPS waiver in a timely fashion may, in particular if it causes a safety issue, result in the shippers’ production being restricted or shut-in.
FPS shippers must not deliver Pipeline Liquids into FPS that do not meet their TPA quality specification unless they have an approved waiver from FPS. BP will invoice shippers for all costs incurred in assessing FPS waiver requests and in handling the off-specification pipeline liquids.
The below presentation gives an overview of FPS’ contaminant management and waiver process.
