Bibby Offshore Completes Significant Decommissioning Contract With Maersk Oil UK
Bibby Offshore, a leading subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, has announced a multimillion pound contract with a global energy player, Maersk Oil UK, to provide both late life production enhancement and decommissioning support in the North Sea.
The contract saw Bibby Offshore’s diving support vessel Bibby Polaris operate at two separate locations, undertaking production system isolations and critical component replacements to facilitate late life production enhancement, together with comprehensive decommissioning support, which includes subsea deconstruction and infrastructure recovery.
Completed in early July, the projects represented the latest in a number of contracts the client has awarded Bibby Offshore within the past 12 months.
Barry Macleod, UKCS managing director at Bibby Offshore, said: “We have successfully completed multiple projects with this customer, with the latest contract demonstrating their confidence in our late life management and decommissioning expertise.
“This is a significant contract for Bibby Offshore. Whilst our relationship with this respected client continues to strengthen, the award is also clear recognition of our commitment to – and capabilities within – the next stage of safe, efficient and cost-effective North Sea management.”
