Bibby lands North Sea work with Shell
- Business & Finance
Bibby Offshore, a subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, has secured a contract with Shell in the North Sea.
The company reported on Monday that the campaign, due to start in the first quarter of 2017, will see Bibby Offshore provide engineering and subsea construction activities in the Gannet G field in the Central North Sea.
Under the agreement, Bibby Offshore will utilize its multipurpose dive support and offshore construction vessel – Bibby Polaris – and its 1000 tonne basket carousel to lay flexible pipe systems in water depths of approximately 95m.
The company has also collaborated with a third party operator who will carry out trenching operations after the initial workscope is complete.
In early 2016, Bibby Offshore provided construction and inspection services for Shell on assets in the Corrib natural gas field in the North Atlantic Ocean.
Howard Woodcock, chief executive of Bibby Offshore said: “This contract will further strengthen our relationship, and highlights Bibby Offshore’s ability to consistently and successfully deliver on complex and challenging projects.”
