Bibby Offshore has secured a contract from Fairfield Energy for subsea infrastructure decommissioning (SID) in the Greater Dunlin Area.
The SID contract, which has been awarded on an EPRD (engineering, preparation, removal and disposal) basis, includes the subsea infrastructure associated with the Osprey and Merlin subsea fields and other infrastructure tied back to the Dunlin Alpha Platform.
The three-year contract, which has a multi-million pound value, has an initial execution window of two years for offshore activities. The engineering work is due to start immediately, with offshore mobilisation expected in April 2018.
“This is a significant award, not just for our business but in terms of the subsea sector as a whole. We are delighted to be working with Fairfield on the Greater Dunlin Area Decommissioning Project and would like to thank them for their support and patience throughout our recent recapitalisation process. The award demonstrates the importance of our track record for safe and effective project delivery, and the confidence in Bibby Offshore’s ability to continue to provide a first class service to clients. This reinforces our confidence in the start of many significant project awards underpinned by the firm footing of a re-capitalised business,” said Howard Woodcock, CEO of Bibby Offshore.
