Shell awards more Corrib inspection work to Bibby

Shell has awarded Bibby Offshore, a subsea services provider, a second contract for the provision of inspection services on the Corrib natural gas field in the Atlantic Ocean.

Bibby said on Wednesday that the contract began in July and is set for completion by the end of this year. Shell awarded the second contract to Bibby after the completion of the first inspection contract in June this year.

For the first contract, the company used the construction support vessel Olympic Ares, equipped with Quantum work class and SeaEye Cougar inspection class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), to perform subsea inspections 83 kilometers off the North West coast of Ireland in water depths of approximately 360 meters.

The 40-day campaign involved pipeline survey inspection work on an 83-kilometer long 20” gas pipeline, and internal wellhead and manifold fault diagnostics, structural inspection and cathodic protection measurements, to ensure optimum levels of productivity were achieved.

For the second contract, the company will again utilize the Olympic Ares, along with two Quantum work class ROVs.

The three-week campaign involves Bibby Offshore installing an electrical distribution unit and replacing several control jumpers. The company will also perform inspection, repair and maintenance services in water depths of 400 meters.

Barry Macleod, managing director at Bibby Offshore, said: “These contracts are very important for Bibby Offshore and our relationship with Shell is continuing to strengthen. Securing the second scope of work off the back of our success in June is a testament to the skill and dedication of our team to deliver for our clients.”
