Oikos is to begin a programme of statutory consultation for the proposed Oikos Marine South Side Development (OMSSD), at its facility on Canvey Island.

It said the OMSSD project forms part of an ongoing investment programme to upgrade and enhance Oikos’ operations, to ensure it can continue to set “industry-leading safety and environmental standards”.

It added: “It will also enable us to future-proof, and to play a vital role in the transition to sustainable bio-fuels, that will be important as the UK prepares to become net-zero in the coming decades.”

Consultation began this week and will run until May 18. To support the programme, it has developed a digital engagement room, which will enable local people to access information about the project and provide feedback in one convenient location.

It will also be holding a series of online public Q&A sessions.
