About Us

Tailwind is an agile oil and gas company founded in 2016

Our leadership team has over 80 years of combined experience in investment and operational exploration, development and production. We are focused on the delivery of sustainable, long term value for our shareholders through technical excellence, holistic understanding of assets and systems and risk mitigation to maximise value in UK continental shelf (UKCS) opportunities.

As a private venture, Tailwind is strengthened by the expertise of our partners, industry peers and trade bodies. We are a member of Oil & Gas UK and the Association of British Independent Oil Exploration Companies (BRINDEX).


Tailwind’s business model is to acquire and optimise producing and near-term development assets in the UKCS that are deemed ‘non-core’ or considered to be of latent value. To drive this model, we look to engage with specialist partners across the sector. Our equity partner Mercuria provides support for our debt finance facilities plus hydrocarbon sales, marketing and hedging through its global trading desks. Learn more about Mercuria here ︎

Tailwind has a committed $350mm RBL facility provided by a consortium of major banks with an additional $400mm uncommitted funding capacity. See Tailwind’s latest financial results here ︎
