Press & Media Information

With over 1.5 million households across the UK on heating oil, oil theft is a very serious threat. In fact, statistics released by NFU in 2014 named heating oil as the ‘third most commonly targeted item in rural areas’, with many homes being targeted for their valuable oil supply by local thieves.

As the UK’s first nationwide heating oil security initiative, Oil Theft Watch aims to reduce the number of heating oil thefts across the UK, by alerting heating oil users to thefts in their area and offering advice on the best ways to protect their oil tanks.
