Bibby Offshore, a subsea services provider, has secured a new contract with Shell in the North Sea.
The campaign, due to start in Q1 2017, will see Bibby Offshore provide engineering and subsea construction activities in the Gannet G field in the Central North Sea.
Under the agreement, Bibby Offshore will utilize its multipurpose dive support and offshore construction vessel ‘Bibby Polaris’ and its integral 1000 tonne basket carousel to lay flexible pipe systems in water depths of approximately 95 meters, the company said.
The company has also collaborated with a third party operator who will carry out trenching operations after the initial work scope is complete.
Howard Woodcock, chief executive of Bibby Offshore said: “Securing this project was a direct result of our established and successful track record with Shell. This contract will further strengthen our relationship, and highlights Bibby Offshore’s ability to consistently and successfully deliver on complex and challenging projects.”
