Bibby Offshore Nets Second Corrib Inspection Contract

Bibby Offshore has been awarded a second contract from Shell to provide inspection services on assets in the Corrib natural gas field offshore Ireland.

The project started in July and is set for completion by the end of this year, the company informed.

The second contract follows the completion of the first one in June this year, which saw Bibby Offshore’s construction support vessel Olympic Ares perform subsea inspections in water depth of approximately 360 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 testament to the skill and dedication of our team to deliver for our clients.”

For the second contract Bibby Offshore will also utilize Olympic Ares, equipped with two Quantum work class remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

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