Three leaders in oil and gas decommissioning have launched a new company – Fairfield Decom – which aims to combine operator knowledge with the expertise and capabilities of major offshore decommissioning contractors.
Leveraging the expertise and assets of Decom Energy, Heerema Marine Contractors and AF Offshore Decom, the group will form a unique late-life operations and decommissioning operator capable of providing an all-encompassing solution for ageing offshore oil and gas assets. Although primarily aimed at the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS), it also intends to access the global decommissioning market, estimated to be worth over $80 billion over the next ten years.
Headquartered in Aberdeen, the group say they are determined to be at the forefront of the drive to establish a thriving decommissioning hub in Scotland and provide what Fairfield Decom has called “next generation decommissioning.”
Fairfield Decom managing director Graeme Fergusson commented: ”We have built a strong business relationship with Heerema and AF Offshore Decom as contracting partners in the Dunlin topsides removal and as alliance partners for integrated decommissioning business opportunities… Our operator background means that we understand what the E&P community wants – an integrated solution that is technically robust, commercially creative and that will deliver a safe, cost-effective and environmentally-sound solution.”
