Bibby Offshore, a leading subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry, today announced that it has secured a significant contract with Shell.

Under the agreement, Bibby Offshore will utilise its multi-purpose dive support and offshore construction vessel - Bibby Polaris - and its integral 1000 tonne basket carousel to lay flexible pipe systems in water depths of approximately 95m.

The company has also collaborated with a third party operator who will carry out trenching operations after the initial work scope is complete.

In early 2016, Bibby Offshore provided construction and inspection services for Shell on assets in the Corrib Natural Gas field in the North Atlantic Ocean, successfully completing two significant contracts.

Howard Woodcock, Chief Executive of Bibby Offshore said: “Securing this project was a direct result of our established and successful track record with Shell. This contract will further strengthen our relationship, and highlights Bibby Offshore’s ability to consistently and successfully deliver on complex and challenging projects.”
