Aquatic Supports Bibby Offshore in ETAP Project for BP

Aquatic Engineering & Construction, an Acteon company, will support Bibby Offshore in replacing subsea infrastructure in the North Sea as part of BP’s $1 billion Eastern Trough Area Project (ETAP) life extension project. 

Aquatic will deploy its carousel system to install 35 kilometers of umbilical ensuring electrical control capability between ETAP’s central processing facility and the Machar field, the company explained.

The umbilical lay campaign is scheduled to start in June and is expected to last approximately 30 days.

This is the first phase of Bibby’s five vessel campaign, involving trenching, structure and riser installation followed by electrical diagnostics and commissioning works.

Aquatic has also been subcontracted to provide lay equipment and personnel for the riser installation campaign in September of this year, the company added.

ETAP, located 240 kilometers east of Aberdeen, comprises nine oil and gas reservoirs, six of which are operated by BP. The ETAP life extension project will help secure the future of the fields until 2030 and beyond.
