Bibby Subsea delivers Shell Pipeline agreement
Bibby Offshore’s Houston-based division, Bibby Subsea, has successfully completed a significant contract with Shell Pipeline, a subsidiary of Shell Oil US, the company said in its press release.
Through its strategic alliance with US diving company, Aqueos Corporation, Bibby Subsea completed the subsea decommissioning project in the Gulf of Mexico, utilising its diving support vessel Bibby Sapphire.
For the 16-day campaign the Bibby Sapphire was equipped with an SMD Quasar work class ROV to disconnect a previously decommissioned eight-inch oil export pipeline from a hot tap tee installed on the Amberjack Pipeline. The team was also tasked with removing the connecting subsea tie-in assembly, 353ft below sea level.
