On the 8th of November 2018 Tailwind completed the acquisition of EOG’s UK business. As part of the inherited EOG UK portfolio, Tailwind owns and operates 100% of the producing Conwy oil field.
Conwy Platform Overview
The Conwy Field is located in Block 110/12a in the East Irish Sea, approximately 33km west of the nearest UK coastline at Great Orme. Conwy is a 12km tie-back to the ENI-operated Doulas Field installation in adjacent Block 110/13b. Conwy will be 100% owned and operated by Tailwind Energy, and as of mid-2018, was producing approximately 8,000 barrels of oil a day.
The Conwy Field was discovered by EOGUKL in June 2009 and has subsequently been developed via a Not Permanently Attended Installation (the ‘’Conway NPAI’’) with three platform production wells, one water injection well and one condensate injection well. Production from the Conwy field commenced in March 2016.

The Conwy platform is a high quality but simple operation that exports reservoir fluids via a subsea pipeline to be processed at the Douglas Facility. The Douglas Complex is operated by Eni andrepresents the central gathering and processing installation for a collection of ENI-operated oil and gas fields in the East Irish Sea region. Once the oil has been processed at Douglas it is transported to an offshore storage vessel from where it is exported via shuttle tanker; all the produced gas is delivered to the Douglas Complex operator.
