Bibby Offshore, a leading subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, has announced a multimillion dollar contract with a global energy player, to provide first gas and construction support on its assets in the Southern North Sea.

The contract, due to be executed between Q3 and Q4 2016, will see Bibby Offshore’s construction support vessel Olympic Ares, and its diving support vessel Bibby Polaris, perform subsea engineering work 150km off the coast of Lincolnshire, in water depths of 21m and 48m.

The workscope, which includes precommissioning and commissioning support, involves Bibby Offshore carrying out a range of construction services comprising valve operations, spool installation, umbilical pull in and lay, trenching and stabilisation through installation of concrete mattresses.

Supported by Bibby’s dedicated onshore engineering team, the company will have access to offshore construction and pull in/lay teams, ensuring efficiency and productivity. 

The contract is Bibby Offshore’s second construction project with the client, following a previous successful campaign in 2015.

Howard Woodcock, chief executive at Bibby Offshore, said: “This is a significant win for Bibby Offshore - not only is it a strong representation of our technical engineering capabilities, but it further underlines our commitment to the North Sea market.

“Continued collaboration with this important and valued client reinforces confidence in our innovative solutions and operational abilities. In an increasingly competitive market, our skillset helps our clients conduct operations in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner.”
