Bibby Offshore clinches three new deals

Bibby Offshore, a subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, has won three individual contracts with an unnamed oil and gas operator described by Bibby as “an 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, Bibby informed on Wednesday.

Engineering work for this project started in 4Q 2017, with dive support vessel (DSV) Bibby Polaris and a construction support vessel (CSV) scheduled to mobilize in 2Q this year with a reel lay spread and tensioner to deploy flexible risers.

The second award will also be carried out by the DSV Bibby Polaris, supporting operations at a Southern North Sea gas field. Bibby Offshore will install the manifold and spools required to connect a new pipeline to the platform.

Howard Woodcock, chief executive at Bibby Offshore, said: “These contract awards represent an important win for Bibby Offshore, leveraging our extensive experience in the North Sea and further strengthening our established relationship with this supermajor.”

Finally, Bibby Offshore has also secured a contract with one of the global subsidiaries of the mysterious oil major. Due to start at the end of March, the project will see Bibby Offshore carry out inspection and remedial works at a gas field off the coast of Tunisia.

DSV Bibby Polaris will again undertake the offshore work with support from the project management team from Bibby Offshore’s Aberdeen headquarters.
