Operations

The Dunlin field came on production in the North Sea in August 1978 with production peaking at approximately 120,000 bopd in 1979.  It is located 500km north-northeast of Aberdeen within the East Shetland Basin and 11.2km from the boundary line with Norway.  The Dunlin field cluster has produced over 522 million barrels over its 37 years of operation, extending the platform’s original 25 year design life by 12 years to secure substantially more reserves.

In 2015, having concluded that Dunlin had reached the point of maximum economic recovery, particularly in the light of prevailing industry conditions, the owners and operators of the Dunlin facilities in conjunction with the UK Government confirmed that production would cease mid-2015 prior to the start of a full decommissioning process
