Savills Energy, Utilities and Infrastructure

Oil & Gas

We have a longstanding involvement in the UK oil and gas sector and now provide a range of property services to a number of upstream and downstream businesses.

Over a period of 30 years Savills Energy has gained a wide range of experience and in depth knowledge of the issues which face the onshore oil and gas industry.

It is estimated that by 2025 the UK will be  importing close to 70% of the gas we consume (assuming a no shale scenario). To ensure future security of supply DECC recognises that the UK must maximise its production of gas alongside renewables and new nuclear. The Institute of Directors estimated that UK shale gas production could  attract annual investment of £3.7 billion. 

The UK’s onshore oil and gas industry will continue to contribute significantly to the economy, and play a prominent role in the UK’s energy future. The requirement to ensure that its extraction, handling, processing and use is made both more efficient and sustainable is becoming increasingly important.

Savills is an associate member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for  Unconventional Oil and Gas.

Particular services to upstream businesses include:

  • Project evaluation 
  • Advice on and negotiation of land rights 
  • Valuations for sale and acquisition 
  • Preparation of securing planning applications 
  • Advice on regulatory issues 

Downstream oil and gas businesses are concerned with the refining and sale of products. Again Savills Energy has considerable involvement for clients such as BP Oil, National Grid Property and Air BP.

Services to downstream businesses include:

  • Management of operational estate 
  • Management of estate and advice on disposal of surplus property assets 
  • Negotiation of land rights for pipelines
