Greater Dunlin Area Decommissioning Programmes

Four subsea decommissioning programmes have to date been undertaken in the Greater Dunlin Area and are now nearing completion.

The Greater Dunlin Area covers the Dunlin, Dunlin South West, Osprey and Merlin Fields in the Shetland Basin of the northern North Sea, for which the Dunlin Alpha platform served as the production facility until mid-2015. Four subsea Decommissioning Programmes have been approved for pipelines and structures for the Osprey and Merlin Fields, the Dunlin Fuel Gas Import and Power Import infrastructure, and for the Dunlin Alpha to Cormorant Alpha Pipeline (PL5). These programmes with their associated comparative assessment reports and environmental appraisals are accessible below.
