Fairfield Energy invests £70m in platform improvements

Fairfield Energy has invested £70m in improvements at its Dunlin platform to help increase and sustain production. These include a fuel gas import system and modified water injection system.

The upgrades are expected to enable production to rise to a year-end exit rate of around 10,000bopd.

For the first time since early 2000, the operator will be able to use its own independent power generation system to achieve significantly higher and sustained water injection performance.
