Pig Handling Fees

BP operates and maintains the pig receivers on Forties Charlie and Forties Unity. BP will recover the costs associated with retrieval of shipper pigs from the pig receivers and with subsequent handling, cleaning and transportation of such pigs to shore. The charges are as follows:

Routine Pigs (including de-waxing pigs)

Unity - £5,775 per pig 

Forties Charlie - £4,900 per pig

Cruden Bay - £2,565 per pig
 
In addition to the above, BP will also recover from the relevant shipper any additional costs incurred in disposing of large quantities of pig trash, and pig trash containing contaminants such as mercury or NORM.

Intelligent Pigs

Unity 

The shipper must enter into an Access Agreement with BP in order to obtain access to Unity to recover intelligent pig data. BP requires an indemnity from the shipper and reimbursement by the shipper for all costs incurred in support of the intelligent pigging activity. 

Forties Charlie 

The shipper must contact Apache to agree access arrangements to Forties Charlie to recover intelligent pig data. BP will recover all costs incurred by it, or on-charged to it by Apache, in support of the intelligent pigging activity.
