During October the team will be carrying out a Cathodic Protection survey along the WLPS pipelines that run from the Buncefield Oil Storage Terminal near Hemel Hempstead and Heathrow Airport.

The survey aims to assesses the condition of the pipeline coating, allowing the team to identify any potential works that may need to be carried out to further protect the pipeline.

Phil Taylor, Head of BPA’s Lands Team, comments; “Your safety is our concern and it’s important that the team regularly walks sections of the pipeline to ensure there are no issues with the pipeline.  It’s also a good way for us to get out and meet landowners and answer any questions they may have.”

To find out when we will be in your area, contact the team on 0800 585 387.

Each year we write to landowners to confirm both current contact details and for a quick check of the ownership of the land through which the pipeline runs.  This helps us keep contact information up to date and allows us to keep landowners fully informed about the pipeline on their land and any works we may need to do.

In recognition of this annual inconvenience, we give landowners the chance to win a food and wine hamper by simply returning the enclosed forms.

The winner, picked at random from those who returned their contact details, was Mr Sinclair of Tollgate Farm Colney Heath. He was the happy recipient of the hamper worth over £100 and packed with goodies.

If you would like the opportunity to win a hamper with more than £100 of food and wine, keep a watch out for our annual letter asking landowners to confirm their contact details, complete the form and return to us using the stamped addressed envelope provided.
