Information to local residents
about the Fawley Refinery and Petrochemical Complex
Some of Fawley’s processing units will be shut down from 17th January as part of a scheduled maintenance activity.
The work is expected to take around four weeks to complete.
Parts of the programme will necessitate 24 hour working.
During the work there may be occasions that the background noise may change and be different from historical norms.
This will be monitored and steps will be taken to minimise background noise as far as possible.
At the beginning and end of this planned activity there may also be some additional flaring.
This is a safe and essential part of the operation.
We will endeavour to minimise any inconvenience to our neighbours from these maintenance activities and if you have any questions or concerns, please call the ExxonMobil Fawley site on:

Improvements to the sports facilities at the Esso-owned Holbury Club site, Long Lane, Holbury
On 11 November New Forest District Council Planning Department passed* the planning application to demolish the existing “Esso club” building, and landscape the area. *(All conditions attached to the planning permission will be met in conjunction with the NFDC Planning Department).
We understand that Esso Club holds great memories as an integral part of our community over many years. However, the main building was unmaintainable and would have cost millions to upgrade to present standards, and so with regret, demolition started on 30 November marking the end of an era.
Esso recognises the importance of the Holbury Club site to the local community and we continue to support Holbury Community Sports Association (HCSA), which comprises of football, cricket, tennis and bowls so that they can play sports on the site in the future.
Simon Downing, Fawley Refinery manager, says: “The Holbury site has been an integral part of the local community for almost 70 years.
We remain committed to supporting the sports facilities for the benefit of all four sports sections of HCSA. We believe this is the best, most sustainable way forward for the site.”
Our community is important to us and over the last 5 years Esso has contributed around £980,000 to local schools, community groups and charities, something for which we are extremely proud.
