Bibby Offshore awarded North Sea contract with Apache
Bibby Offshore, a leading subsea services provider to the oil and gas industry secured a substantial contract from Apache North Sea Ltd to provide subsea construction, ROV and diving services at the largest oil field in the North Sea, the Company said in a press release.
The contract, due to begin this month, will utilise Bibby Offshore’s multi role diving support vessel the Bibby Topaz, equipped with an inspection class ROV.
The project, which involves well tie-ins and spool change-out at the Aviat and Bacchus locations, along with the associated pre-commissioning works, will be conducted to tie back the subsea wells to the Forties Oil Field, 110 miles east of Aberdeen.

This contract win, in a competitive market, further demonstrates the confidence our clients have in Bibby Offshore’s ability to successfully deliver subsea projects on time and within budget.”
