Before operating near to pipelines, call us free to Know What’s Below
The British Pipeline Agency Limited (BPA) manages more than 1000km of buried high pressure fuel pipelines across the UK that carry highly flammable petroleum or natural gas products at very high pressure.
The pipelines bisect the UK and, although designed to meet the internal pressures, are susceptible to potential damage from people inadvertently working in close proximity to them. This website is a place where landowners, tenants and interested parties can go to find out more about living and working near BPA’s high pressure pipelines. It also provides landowners with a communications channel should they wish to contact the team at BPA or to raise any questions or concerns they may have about the pipeline running through their land.
In many cases the pipelines are less than one metre from the surface and this can inadvertently lead to accidents should the safety guidelines not be followed. Any damage caused to the pipeline could prove not only costly but potentially fatal, so please contact BPA on 0800 585 387 to ‘Know what’s Below’.
