Oil and Pipelines Agency Announce Upgrade Plans at Gosport Oil Fuel Depot

Published: 4th July 2017 10:54

The Oil and Pipelines Agency (OPA) has hosted a public consultation event in advance of a planning application being submitted for upgrade works at the Oil Fuel Depot at Forton Road, Gosport. 

Navy Command took ownership of the Oil Fuel Depots in 2015 and the Gosport redevelopment reflects a significant investment in the Oil Fuel infrastructure and is key to the Royal Navy operating in the 21st century.

The OPA’s Gosport facility was originally built in 1910 and has been operational for over a hundred years, providing a vital service as a fuel storage facility for the Royal Navy and other MOD customers. The fuel storage tanks on the Gosport site are nearing the end of their service life. 

Adrian Jackson, Chief Executive at OPA, said: “Once completed, this multi-million pound investment will ensure the Gosport Oil Fuel Depot will be fully equipped to the latest safety standards, ready to meet future requirements, serving an essential role in the era of the new Queen Elizabeth Class carriers.”

Commodore Graeme Little, OBE RN, said “I am delighted to be working with the OPA and DIO on this important project”.

The tanks will be removed and replaced using a phased process to ensure that the site remains operational throughout, and the project will be completed by 2021.

Representatives from OPA and the MOD met residents to discuss the plans and take questions prior to the submission of a planning application. For more information about the planned works, email GosportOFD@communitycomms.co.uk or phone 08000 499 734.
