Bibby Offshore has won two contracts from Shell to provide inspection services on assets in the Corrib Natural Gas field in the North Atlantic Ocean.

The first contract, completed in June this year, saw Bibby Offshore’s construction support vessel Olympic Ares – equipped with Quantum Work Class and SeaEye Cougar Inspection Class ROVs – perform subsea inspections 50-miles off the north west coast of Ireland, in water depths of approximately 360m.

The 40-day project involved pipeline survey inspection work on a 50-mile, 20-inch diameter gas pipeline, and internal wellhead and manifold fault diagnostics, structural inspection and cathodic protection measurements, to ensure optimum levels of productivity were achieved.

Bibby Offshore’s successful completion of this scope of work resulted in Shell awarding the company a second contract at its West Ireland assets.

The project is set for completion by the end of this year, and will utilise Bibby’s construction support vessel Olympic Ares which is equipped with two Quantum Work Class ROVs.
