ExxonMobil Fawley Site
Notice – Large load – Sunday 26th May 2019

A large-load transporter will be entering the Fawley site via the wide load gate on Sunday 26th May 2019.

The transporter is coming from Calshot and will leave there at 06:15.  It will be travelling slowly until it reaches the gate.  At this point it is likely that traffic will be held up slightly as the load manoeuvres into the gate. 

A support vehicle, with personnel on foot, will be in attendance helping with the traffic. 

The estimated arrival time of this load is 07:30.  The wide load gate is adjacent to the junction of the B3053 and Church Lane.


ExxonMobil Fawley Complex, Southampton

Statement updated on Friday 10th May. 

Work continues at Fawley Refinery and Petrochemical Plant to resolve a steam leak on one of our units that has caused additional noise. We apologise to our neighbours for any disturbance caused and remain committed to shutting down the unit and repairing the leak as soon as practicable.

We recognise that the steam leak has an impact, both on the community (which we very much regret), and our site’s business performance. So we are working hard to resolve this issue.

Unfortunately, the recent weather and wind direction has not helped, as the noise has been directed towards Holbury, when the prevailing South Westerly wind would normally direct it away.

We will continue to keep our community and the authorities informed of the current status and will update this statement as appropriate.

We fully understand that the noise can be annoying to our neighbours and would like to reaffirm that we are committed to resolving the issue as soon as practicable.

Anyone with any concerns or question about operations at Fawley should call ExxonMobil Community Affairs on 0238 892 511.
