Three separate multi-million dollar contracts with a major oil and gas company have been won by the Aberdeen-based subsea services provider Bibby Offshore.
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 company’s oil fields in the central North Sea. Engineering work for this project started in the fourth quarter of last year with the dive support vessel Bibby Polaris, 8,234gt, and a construction support vessel due to be to mobilised in the second quarter of this year with a reel lay spread and tensioner to deploy flexible risers.
The second contract will also be carried out by the 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.
The third contract was due to start at the end of March and will see Bibby Offshore carry out inspection and remedial works at a gas field off the coast of Tunisia. The Bibby Polaris will again undertake the offshore work.
