Bibby Offshore has been awarded a significant six month long contract with TAQA for subsea construction works in the Eider field, located 184 km north-east of Shetland.
The contract will see Bibby Offshore adopt a multivessel approach, utilising two of fleet: its subsea support and construction vessel, Olympic Ares, and its diving support vessel, Bibby Polaris.
The project comprises the connection of the existing Otter Production pipeline to the existing Eider Oil Export pipeline, and connection of the existing Tern-Eider water injection pipeline to the existing Otter water injection pipeline using subsea bypass spools.
Bibby Offshore will provide spool piece metrology, barrier testing, removal of existing production and water injection spools and precommissioning support. The team will also manage procurement, fabrication and installation of new bypass spools.
Barry Macleod, UK Continental Shelf Managing Director at Bibby Offshore said: “Our multi-vessel approach enabled the project team to tailor our capabilities to TAQA’s requirements, which plays a key role in demonstrating our ability to successfully deliver a variety of workscopes.”
