Bibby Offshore to provide subsea construction services for Apache

Bibby Offshore is to provide subsea construction, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) and diving services to Apache North Sea, in a project that will utilise Bibby’s diving support vessel Bibby Topaz and an inspection-class ROV.

The contract is scheduled to commence this month, but neither its value nor its duration were disclosed.

The project will tie back subsea wells at the Aviat and Bacchus locations to the North Sea’s largest oil field, the Forties oilfield, located 110 miles east of Aberdeen.

The work will involve well tie-ins and spool change-out at Aviat and Bacchus, plus pre-commissioning work.

“We are delighted to have secured another North Sea contract and to be working with the Apache North Sea team again, further strengthening our relationship. This contract win, in a competitive market, further demonstrates the confidence our clients have in Bibby Offshore’s ability to successfully deliver subsea projects on time and within budget,” Fraser Moonie, COO at Bibby Offshore, said in a release.
