Bibby Subsea hires Brandon Bordelon ULIV

Bibby Offshore’s Houston-based division, Bibby Subsea, has signed a three year contract with Bordelon Marine to charter a new vessel.

The Brandon Bordelon is an ultra-light intervention vessel (ULIV) and will start a three year charter in August 2015 primarily operating in the Gulf of Mexico. The addition of the Brandon Bordelon to Bibby Offshore’s existing international fleet of specialised vessels enhances the capability throughout the Americas region, Bibby said in the press release.

According to the company, the purpose built, high specification Brandon Bordelon vessel provides a versatile and cost effective approach to a variety of operations, including IMR operations (inspection, maintenance and repair), light construction, survey and inspection work.

“Signing a contract with Bordelon Marine for this new ULIV allows us to offer clients a cost effective and efficient alternative to other options currently available in the light intervention market.”

Since its inception, Bibby Subsea says it has experienced significant client demand for its service offering, which continues to increase across North America. In November 2014, the company also announced investment in a custom-built facility. Located in the Houston Energy Corridor, the company says it is set to strengthen its presence and enhance its on-the-ground support for clients in the region.

Bordelon Marine is a provider of marine transport services to the oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico and around the world. The Brandon Bordelon’s sister vessel, the Connor Bordelon, received 2014 American Ship Review Ship of the Year Award.

Andrew Duncan, President and Managing Director of Bibby Subsea, said:

“Signing a contract with Bordelon Marine for this new ULIV allows us to offer clients a cost effective and efficient alternative to other options currently available in the light intervention market.

“Over the past ten years Bibby Offshore has established a significant international presence and is a leading provider of IMR support and subsea construction services in the UK North Sea, with a proven track record of providing quality assets and people to their established client base. We are committed to bringing those principles to the Americas region.”

Wes Bordelon, president and CEO of Bordelon Marine commented:

“The contract with Bibby Subsea underpins our commitment to providing a first class service to the Gulf of Mexico region and significantly increases our offering to this highly specialised market. As a family owned business ourselves, we are aligned with Bibby Offshore’s ethos to provide excellence while maintaining the health, safety and well-being of our customers, colleagues and the environment.”
