Bibby Secures North Sea Services Contract with BP

Bibby Offshore has secured a diving support services contract with BP, which is due to commence in August this year.

The 15 day project will see diving support vessel Bibby Topaz work on four BP operations across three of its North Sea assets. The platforms involved include central North Sea-based Bruce, east of Shetland-based Magnus, and the Mirren field, which is part of the Eastern Trough Area Project (ETAP) - one of the largest and most complex North Sea oil and gas developments of the past 20 years.

The project, managed by the Bibby Offshore team, involves the supply of air and saturation diving support to perform operations including spool and flowline disconnection, evaluation and instalation of conductor clamp guides, alignment clamp instalation and modifications to a gas lift system.

“Encouraging innovation is one of our core values and it was through our team’s innovative approach that we were successful in being awarded this contract from BP. Through our innovative engineering solution we managed to reduce offshore operations which in turn provided efficiencies and cost savings,” said Fraser Moonie, chief operating officer at Bibby Offshore.

“We are pleased to continue our strong relationship with BP, built up internationally over the last ten years and more recently in the UK North Sea. Client satisfaction and confidence is imperative to Bibby Offshore and we are pleased that BP has trusted us with this important piece of repeat business,” he added.
