Three companies in the decommissioning sector have launched a new company: Fairfield Decom. Headquartered in Aberdeen, this new platform creates late-life operations and decommissioning operator, providing solutions for offshore oil and gas assets, primarily in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).

Fairfield Decom’s clients will have direct access to the expertise and assets of Decom Energy, Heerema Marine Contractors and AF Offshore Decom, with Fairfield Decom having the capability to manage, integrate and then execute end-to-end late life operations and decommissioning activities.

Graeme Fergusson, Managing Director of Fairfield Decom, 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. The three companies have unrivalled experience in decommissioning and there is great alignment in terms of our responsible approach to business and our core values. 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.”

Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, Heerema CEO, commented: “Heerema is proud to be part of this unique new venture. Three leaders in the global decommissioning market have joined forces, providing a smarter, cost-effective and more sustainable approach to decommissioning and recycling offshore structures. As an experienced offshore contractor, Heerema is continuously seeking opportunities to further strengthen our position in the international offshore market through innovation, pro-activity and reliability. Fairfield Decom is a great example of how we are achieving those ambitions.”

Bengt Hildisch, Managing Director of AF Offshore Decom, commented: “AF Offshore Decom is very pleased to collaborate with partners who are aligned with our goals. The establishment of Fairfield Decom represents an important step change in the decommissioning business model. It responds to the call from the UK Regulator, the Oil and Gas Authority, to create new business delivery models to reduce complexity to support the next generation of decommissioning.”
