The workscope, which includes precommissioning and commissioning support, involves Bibby Offshore carrying out a range of construction services comprising valve operations, spool installation, umbilical pull in and lay, trenching and stabilisation through installation of concrete mattresses. Supported by Bibby’s dedicated onshore engineering team, the company will have access to offshore construction and pull in/lay teams, ensuring efficiency and productivity is maximised.
