Esso Petroleum Company Limited is proposing to install a new aviation fuel pipeline from Fawley Oil Refinery in Southampton to London’s Heathrow Airport.
This pipeline project is considered a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project and Esso is applying for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to construct the scheme.
Carter Jonas has and continues to act on behalf of claimants who are subject to the proposed DCO application. Due to the linear nature of this infrastructure project, our instructions have been wide ranging across a broad range of differing property interests and land uses. We have advised on interests to include agricultural land, woodland, urban land, and residential property.
We have been consulting with Esso on various matters on behalf of claimants. Namely, negotiating the offer provided to clients and engaging with Esso to secure protections for aspects such as routing and construction.
Our role aims to ensure that clients are properly represented both in the lead up to construction, during construction and afterwards on the basis that clients may incur financial costs which they are entitled to be compensated for. In several cases, Carter Jonas has made representations on behalf of clients and has given evidence at Esso’s Compulsory Acquisition Hearing.
