Aberdeen-based subsea installation contractor Bibby Offshore has secured a multi-million pound contract with Maersk Oil U.K.

The agreement will see Bibby Offshore commit its Diving Support Vessel (DSV), Bibby Sapphire, to support  construction and inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) activities on Maersk Oil U.K.’s North Sea assets for a period of 365 continuous days, starting in early January 2014.

Three further one-year options have also been agreed between the companies with engineering work commencing onshore in quarter three of 2013

Bibby Offshore has successfully delivered IRM services and construction work for Maersk Oil previously; in particular the Gryphon Area Reinstatement Program which involved extensive installation and tie-ins of flexible and control jumpers, with pre-commissioning and testing carried out to connect the Gryphon ‘A’ FPSO.
