Bibby Offshore wins Shell subsea work

Bibby Offshore has been awarded a second contract from Shell to provide inspection services on assets in the Corrib Natural Gas field in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Bibby Offshore completed the first contract with Shell in June this year. The 40 day campaign involved pipeline survey inspection work and internal wellhead and manifold fault diagnostics, structural inspection and cathodic protection measurements, to ensure optimum levels of productivity were achieved.

The second contract will see Bibby Offshore utilise its construction support vessel Olympic Ares, equipped with two Quantum Work Class ROVs, to work at Shell’s West Ireland assets. The project is set for completion by the end of this year.

The three week campaign involves Bibby Offshore installing an electrical distribution unit and several replacement control jumpers. The company will also perform inspection, repair and maintenance services.

“These contracts are very important for Bibby Offshore and our relationship with Shell is continuing to strengthen. Securing the second scope of work off the back of our success in June is testament to the skill and dedication of our team to deliver for our clients,” said Barry Macleod, managing director at Bibby Offshore.
