Bibby carries out decom project in Gulf of Mexico for Shell

Bibby Offshore’s Houston-based division, Bibby Subsea, has completed a contract with Shell Pipeline, a subsidiary of Shell Oil US.

Bibby said on Monday that, through an alliance with US diving company Aqueos Corporation, it completed a subsea decommissioning project in the Gulf of Mexico utilizing its diving support vessel Bibby Sapphire.

The company added that the Bibby Sapphire was equipped with an SMD Quasar work class ROV to disconnect a previously decommissioned eight-inch oil export pipeline from a hot tap tee installed on the Amberjack Pipeline.

During the 16-day campaign, Bibby also removed the connecting subsea tie-in assembly, 353ft below sea level.

Fraser Moonie, Bibby Subsea president and managing director, said: “Securing this contract was a direct result of our strategic alliance with Aqueos, and we are delighted to have been selected to execute this project; it is an example of the commitment and capability that the teams possess, and builds on completed work from earlier this year.

“It reinforces Bibby Offshore’s successful and long-standing track record with the leading international oil company, in a highly competitive marketplace.”
