BPA Pipelines in UK

BPA’s Landowner Services team has issued letters to nearly 2000 landowner and tenants along BPA’s 1000km pipeline network in the UK.

BPA is requesting all recipients to respond to the letter using the enclosed form and self-addressed envelope.  By responding, we are able to ensure our records are up to date and that we have the correct details should we need to contact landowners in the event of an emergency or planned works.  The letter also provides information on who landowners need to contact, and what to do, if they are required to operate in the vicinity of one of the high-pressure fuel pipelines.

Those who respond to the request and return their completed forms in the self-addressed envelope by the end of June will automatically be entered into a prize draw to receive one of five luxurious hampers.

Please keep a look out for the letter and be sure to promptly return it to the BPA team.

Many thanks

BPA Pipeline repairs

The BPA team has successfully excavated more than 13m of pipeline in Beeston, Cheshire, to undertake repair works to the pipeline’s infrastructure.  The works were completed following close liaison and support from the landowner, allowing for minimal disruption and for normal farming activities to resume promptly.

We’re delighted to announce that the winners of this year’s hampers are Mr Bell from Cobham, Surrey, and Mrs Deborah Todd from Latimer, near Chesham.  The two winners were selected at random from the hundreds of landowners and tenants who confirmed their contact details and map to BPA.

Each year BPA writes to the landowners along its pipeline network to remind them of the high-pressure oil pipeline that runs under their land, what to do if they need to undertake groundworks in the vicinity of the pipeline and to check that they are still responsible for the land.  Everyone who returns the map, confirming their details is entered into the prize drawn

The hamper, worth more than £100, is packed with goodies, including wine, chocolates and plenty of other Christmas goodies.  Both recipients were presented with their hampers by members of BPA’s lands team.

Phil Taylor, Lands Manager at BPA, comments: “Each year we write to landowners to remind them of the high-pressure oil pipeline pipelines that run under their land and to confirm that we have their correct contact details.  Those who respond are automatically entered into the draw and it’s great to be able to give these two lucky landowners a treat just before Christmas.”

Letters are sent to more than 2000 recipients along the BPA pipeline network as part of the company’s “Know What’s Below” campaign.  The campaign has helped reduce the number of incidents, accidents and spills along the pipeline network.
