HOUSTON– Through its strategic alliance with Aqueos Corp., Bibby Subsea has completed a decommissioning project in the Gulf of Mexico for Shell Pipeline, a subsidiary of Shell Oil US.

For the 16-day campaign the diving support vesselBibby Sapphire was equipped with an SMD Quasar work class ROV to disconnect a decommissioned 8-in. 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, 353 ft (108 m) 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.”
