Fairfield Energy (now a subsidiary of Decom Energy) established as a UK independent E&P company with the ambition to invest in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS) and become an operator of scale and substance.
Fairfield and JV partner, MCX acquire the Dunlin field and associated infrastructure with the remit to extend the life of the field beyond the planned 2010 Cessation of Production (CoP) date.
Development continues with the event of first gas at Clipper South, and the conclusion of the Darwin farm-in agreement as the company increases its presence in the UKCS.
Fairfield becomes Dunlin duty holder and investment continues in the field to revitalise production and improve water injection, power generation and fuel gas infrastructure.
Clipper South divested, and Dunlin enters the decommissioning phase; Greater Dunlin Area production terminates on 15 June 2015 after 37 years of operation and production of more than 522 million barrels of oil from the fields.
Company is restructured and Decom Energy established as the parent company with the remit of creating a new decommissioning business model to provide new career opportunities for the skilled workforce.
The Greater Dunlin Area Decommissioning Project progresses effectively and efficiently, with the successful execution of comprehensive platform and subsea wells Plugging & Abandonment (P&A) programmes.
The project enters the operations phase of Subsea Infrastructure Decommissioning removal. HAF consortium awarded a significant contract for the Topsides Removal phase at the Greater Dunlin Area.
