Emerging pipeline scheme in England and Wales

Our role

  • Our role involved advising Peel NRE on the implications of the project for the future development potential of its land interests, liaising with the applicant team to secure appropriate amendments and making formal representations to the DCO process where required.
  • We worked closely with the consultant team and pre-FEED engineering consultants to understand the emerging scheme and its environmental and engineering constraints. 
  • Our role has also involved reviewing the DCO documentation and responding to the examining authority’s questions. We have also liaised with the appointed legal team to prepare necessary agreements between Peel NRE and the applicants..


  • HyNet will be one of the first decarbonisation projects to be delivered in the UK. It will comprise a hydrogen production plant and pipeline to replace fossil fuels as a source of energy for industries in the North West. It will also comprise carbon dioxide capture, transportation and storage (CCUS) infrastructure.
  • This component of HyNet has just been granted DCO. The pipeline extends from Cheshire to North Wales, travelling south of Protos Resource Recovery Park through Peel NRE’s land holdings. Above ground installations are also proposed on land owned by Peel NRE.
