Written by  OE Staff Monday, 06 November 2017 17:47

Bibby Offshore’s Houston-based division, Bibby Subsea, has successfully completed a subsea decommissioning project with Shell Pipeline, a subsidiary of Shell Oil US.

Through its strategic alliance with US diving company, Aqueos Corp., Bibby Subsea completed the project in the Gulf of Mexico, using 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 8in 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.

Fraser Moonie, Bibby Subsea president and managing director, said: “Securing this contract was a direct result of our strategic alliance with Aqueos, and we are delighted to have been selected to execute this project; it is an example of the commitment and capability that the teams possess, and builds on completed work from earlier this year."
