Bibby Offshore secures offshore contract hat-trick

Bibby Offshore has secured three major contracts from an unnamed oil and gas supermajor.

The initial contract will see Bibby Offshore complete riser replacement works including a production/test riser and riser buoy connector pipe changeout at one of the major’s oil fields, situated in the Central North Sea. The company will deploy dive support vessel Bibby Polaris for the engineering work, which has commenced in the fourth quarter of 2017. Additionally, Bibby offshore will mobilise a construction support vessel in the second quarter this year.

The second award will see DSV  Bibby Polaris support operations at a Southern North Sea gas field including the installation of the manifold and spools required to connect a new pipeline to the platform.

Lastly, Bibby Offshore has secured a contract to carry out inspection and remedial works at a gas field off the coast of Tunisia. DSV Bibby Polaris will again undertake the offshore work which is expected to commence at the end of March.

“All three projects are the result of a cross-business effort to deliver safe and competitive services, drawing on the skills and expertise of the entire Bibby Offshore team. These contracts not only demonstrate the breadth of our capabilities, but they also reinforce Bibby Offshore’s successful and long-standing track record with this client, in a highly competitive marketplace,” said Howard Woodcock, chief executive at Bibby Offshore.
