We have worked at Wytch Farm, the largest onshore oilfield in Western Europe, since 1983. Wytch Farm is located within a highly sensitive area, which includes an AONB, Heritage Coast, SACs, SPAs, Ramsar sites and SSSIs.

We have been involved in all aspects of the development, including the gathering station, wellsites, pipelines and cables.

In 1986 we helped BP secure planning consents for the oilfields through to 2016. In 2011, BP sold its interests in the oilfields to Perenco (UK) Ltd. We supported both BP and Perenco in obtaining the planning consents required to transfer operatorship. We were then retained by Perenco to submit a series of planning applications to extend the consents to operate the oilfields through to 2037.

In addition to supporting on major applications, we provide day-to-day advice for smaller scale developments within the oilfields drawing on our extensive knowledge of the site.
