Bibby Offshore provides subsea construction and IRM services to Maersk Oil UK

Award-winning subsea installation contractor, Bibby Offshore, has recently started work with Maersk Oil UK on a multimillion pound contract.

The contract will see Bibby Offshore provide subsea construction and inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM) services to all of Maersk’s North Sea assets. Dive Support Vessel (DSV) Bibby Sapphire will undertake the offshore execution work, and an extensive engineering project management team based onshore will support this.

Barry Macleod, Managing Director UKCS of Bibby Offshore, said: “We have successfully completed contracts for Maersk Oil in the past and we are delighted to continue our working relationship. This contract demonstrates confidence in our ability to deliver complex and challenging subsea projects.

“2013 was an extremely successful year for Bibby Offshore and the business is expanding rapidly, with our restructure of our management team we have put in a strong foundation to support further growth and to continue to offer the commitment and expertise to our clients.”

Engineering work for this project started in the third quarter of 2013. The initial work scope will see Bibby Offshore complete well tie-ins, decommissioning, support for flow line connection and disconnection, and IRM activities in support of Maersk Oil’s Gryphon and GP3 Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) Units and the Janice Floating Production Unit (FPU).

Bibby Offshore has a long track record of IRM services and construction work for Maersk Oil with the Gryphon Area Reinstatement Programme. Bibby completed extensive installation and tie-ins of flexible and control jumpers, with pre-commissioning and testing carried out to connect the Gryphon ‘A’ FPSO.

Named ‘Company of the Year’, Bibby Offshore and Bibby Remote Intervention Limited (BRIL), has grown from 10 employees in 2003 to now employing more than 1,300 people onshore and offshore worldwide, with offices in Aberdeen, Liverpool, Newcastle, Houston, Singapore and Trinidad. The company has an international fleet of eight subsea support vessels and 15 Remote Operating Vehicles (ROV) and will continue to add to their fleet to meet demand.
