Decommissioning work for Bibby Offshore, as the subsea services firm secures a contract with an unnamed operator for an oil and gas field offshore Shetland.
The company confirmed that the multimillion pound contract will see them provide decommissioning services in the East Shetland Basin, UK North Sea.
“We are looking forward to building on our existing relationship with this particular client and continuing our partnership to provide subsea services for its offshore assets.” said Bibby Offshore COO, Fraser Moonie.
Decommissioning Work For Bibby Offshore
The work includes remedial rock placement over the existing 16” oil export pipeline, recovery of 12” pipeline bundles, subsea structure removal with pile severance and debris removal within the platform’s 500m zone and along bundle routes.
Waste disposal services will also be provided by BOUK, recovering items that can be decontaminated, disposed or recycled, followed by an over-trawl of the cleared field.
Work on the project is scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 20016, and be completed by the end of the year, with Bibby Offshore using on of its offshore construction support vessels.
“Decommissioning work is of a specialist nature and, with more oil and gas infrastructures reaching the end of their design life, multi-industry experience is key to ensure each project is complete in a safe and responsible manner.” added Moonie.
“With ten years of experience in decommissioning projects globally, often in highly challenging conditions, we have built up a strong track record and are ideally positioned to support companies operations.”
