JDR has signed a framework agreement with Bibby Offshore for cable maintenance activities. 

Under the strategic alliance, JDR will provide cable maintenance services and offshore personnel, including high voltage and fibre optic cable jointers and associated competency systems.

Bibby Offshore will deliver project management and engineering services, in addition to a marine vessel with equipment for on-deck cable handling, storage carousel or reels. It will also provide cable lay and subsea equipment for lifting, excavation and burial of cables.

The agreement was signed during the opening day of Global Offshore Wind 2016 conference and exhibition in Manchester, UK, the companies informed.

JDR CEO, David Currie, said: “This agreement is an example of JDR’s expanding range of services to the global energy industry. Our technicians are highly experienced in offshore construction activities and we are delighted to partner with Bibby Offshore for future cable maintenance tenders.”

Bibby Offshore MD Barry Macleod said: “This agreement builds upon our recently announced cooperation with Ecosse Subsea Ltd and is a further example of the collaborative approach that we are bringing our offshore energy clients. Our ability to rapidly mobilize a marine cable repair vessel and spread in support of highly skilled JDR technicians will differentiate our service.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
