Another offshore decommissioning project is being supported from Lerwick Harbour – this time for Fairfield Energy’’s Dunlin Field, in the East Shetland Basin.

Port Authority Chief Executive, Captain Calum Grains, said: “The contract represents more success for Peterson and its partner, Veolia, and is further confirmation of the established role the port fulfills in the growing decommissioning market.”

Peterson announced on social media today “Peterson and partner Veolia are successfully supporting Rever Offshore, a leading subsea services provider, with the receipt, handling and waste management of materials for ongoing Fairfield Dunlin decommissioning works.

Our 20,000 sqm fully permitted Lerwick Greenhead decommissioning site is an ideal location for subsea decommissioning projects such as this one.”

Captain Grains added: “With our Greenhead and Dales Voe bases complementing each other in decommissioning, the Dunlin deal is additional encouragement for further expansion of our capacity, including a heavy duty pad at Dales and our vision of Lerwick as the location for the UK’s ultra-deep-water facility to meet future requirements.”
