Time to THINK different and ACT different…

Fairfield Decom is a new company with a completely different approach to ultra-late life operations and decommissioning.  As the first true Decom Operator in the North Sea, Fairfield Decom occupies a unique position within the market.  Our approach is to take control of the field in the last years of its life, which gives us a thorough knowledge of the infrastructure. We manage, integrate and then execute the entire scope of ultra-late life operations purely with decommissioning in mind, thus creating efficiencies, managing risks, and enabling Operators to concentrate their resources on their core E&P business activities.

This is what we call “Next Generation Decommissioning”

Our commitment is to deliver efficiency with safety-assured, technically sound and cost-effective outcomes.

The decommissioning market is evolving…

…both on the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) and overseas. As many of the foremost oil-producing basins mature and assets and installations are reaching ‘end of life’, the question of what to do with them, and how best to do it, is moving from the hypothetical into real practice.

Fairfield Decom is at the forefront of the movement to address the need for a fully-fledged decommissioning solution for the UKCS. The challenge is huge, with Oil & Gas UK Decommissioning Insight 2018 announcing significant forecasts for the next decade.
