Netherley Booster Station

One of four pumping stations designed to pressurise the landward section of the Forties Pipeline System (FPS), Netherley Booster Station is located 2 miles (3 km) north northwest of Netherley and 5 miles (8 km) west of Portlethen in Aberdeenshire. This 91-cm (36-inch) pipeline transports oil from the North Sea to Kinneil Terminal near Grangemouth, with a capacity of more than one million barrels of oil per day. The station began operation in 1975 for BP but is now owned and operated by INEOS. There are further pumping stations at Cruden Bay, Brechin and Balbeggie.
