Bibby Offshore lands ROV pipeline inspection gig in Myanmar
Bibby Offshore’s Asian division, Bibby Offshore Singapore (‘BOS’), has secured a contract with the Moattama Gas Transportation Company (“MGTC”).
MGTC, a joint venture between Total (operator), Unocal, PTT-EP and Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise, has appointed BOS to provide ROV pipeline inspection, remedial work and associated project management on its South East Asia asset offshore Myanmar.
Bibby Offshore will supply its DP2 ROV support vessel, Bibby Spring. The vessel is equipped with dual ROVs, including the latest 150HP, 3000m-rated SMD Quasar, and complemented by a Lynx lightweight ROV suitable for dive support, inspection and repair.
The 60 day project on the Yadana field in the Andaman Sea commenced on 16 February 2015, and will be carried out in water depths of up to 146 meters.
Peter Hughes, Managing Director at BOS said: “Bibby Offshore has a longstanding relationship with Total, the majority stakeholder in the MGTC partnership, with a track record spanning more than a decade of successfully delivering a high standard of service on the company’s North Sea assets.”
