Bibby Offshore, subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, has announced a substantial contract win with Apache North Sea Ltd to provide subsea construction, ROV and diving services at the largest oil field in the North Sea.
The contract, due to begin this month, will utilise Bibby Offshore’s multi-role diving support vessel the Bibby Topaz, equipped with an inspection class ROV.
The project, which involves well tie-ins and spool change-out at the Aviat and Bacchus locations, along with the associated pre-commissioning works, will be conducted to tie back the subsea wells to the Forties Oil Field, 110 miles east of Aberdeen.
Fraser Moonie, chief operating officer at Bibby Offshore, says, “We are delighted to have secured another North Sea contract and to be working with the Apache North Sea team again, further strengthening our relationship. This contract win, in a competitive market, further demonstrates the confidence our clients have in Bibby Offshore’s ability to successfully deliver subsea projects on time and within budget.”
