Subsea services provider, Bibby Offshore (BOUK), has secured a multimillion pound contract with a North Sea Operator, to deliver decommissioning operations in the Northern North Sea East Shetland Basin.

The agreement, due to commence in Q2 of 2016 and be completed by the end of 2016, will utilise one of Bibby Offshore’s construction support vessels with adequate deck space and crane capabilities to execute operations approximately 550km North-East of Aberdeen.

Bibby Offshore has been appointed to carry out 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.

Fraser Moonie, chief operating officer of Bibby Offshore, said: “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.

“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. 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.”
