Scottish subsea services provider Bibby Offshore has secured a fixed-term framework agreement from Europe’s independent oil and gas operator Spirit Energy.
As per the agreement, Bibby Offshore will be responsible for carrying out inspection repair and maintenance (IRM) works, ROV inspection and subsea survey operations across Spirit Energy’s number of North Sea structures and pipelines.
The new two-year deal follows on from a previous five-year agreement.
Bibby Offshore chief executive Howard Woodcock said: “The award of a further two-year framework with Spirit Energy is a clear demonstration of the strength of the relationship between Bibby Offshore and the client.
“Having successfully delivered a varied programme of workscopes across the company’s Morecambe Bay assets, and North Sea pipelines and structures over the past five years, this latest agreement highlights the ongoing confidence in our ability to deliver safe, on time, multi-scope operations to meet the needs of our client.”
For carrying out the inspections, BibbyOffshore will be making use of its diverse fleet capabilities, including its multi-role diving and remotely operated vehicle (ROV) support vessel, Bibby Sapphire, a Quasar MKII work class ROV and two Seaeye Lynx observation class ROVs.
Established in 2003 in Aberdeen, Scotland, Bibby Offshore has been providing safe, innovative and cost-effective solutions to the oil and gas industry.
Last month, Bibby Offshore provided its divers with an innovative diving safety system called Compact Bailout Rebreathing Apparatus (COBRA) and became the first company to do so.
