Bibby Offshore makes appointments for new divisionCompany News // November 1, 2012
Bibby Remote Intervention Limited (BRIL) has announced the recent appointments of Lloyd Duncan as Senior Inspection, Maintenance & Repair and Maintenance (IMR) Consultant and Andy Inglis to the role of Inspection Manager.
BRIL is the latest division of Aberdeen-based subsea installation contractor Bibby Offshore and was initially established with the intention of internalising Bibby’s existing Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) needs and to bring the service provision in-house.
An initial investment of close to £9 million has been made in ROV systems to support Bibby Offshore’s fleet of Diving Support Vessels (DSVs).
Increased market demand for ROV services, particularly in the IRM sector, has led to further expansion of the ROV service provision and the creation of the inspection department. A total of 46 jobs have been created on and offshore already this year within BRIL.
Both Mr Duncan and Mr Inglis will be tasked with running the BRIL inspection department. Mr Duncan will have commercial responsibility for the acquisition and delivery of inspection projects, whilst Mr Inglis’ duties will include overseeing the technical delivery of all inspection projects.
Mr Duncan brings over 20 years of management experience within the oil and gas sector to BRIL. He joins the company from MCS where he held the position of Chief Operating Officer, whilst he was also responsible for operational aspects of Deeptech. Prior to this, he worked at Subsea 7 for 13 years where he held a number of positions both in the UK and overseas. In his last role at Subsea 7, as Global Inspection and Integrity Manager, he was personally responsible for meeting global requirements and overseeing delivery of inspection, integrity management and data management services to the division.
Mr Inglis has over 10 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry with expert knowledge of subsea inspection with both ROVs and divers. He joins BRIL from Subsea 7 where he worked for eight years, most recently as Inspection Interface Manager. Previously, Mr Inglis held the role of Senior Onshore Inspection Coordinator for four years where he was accountable for all aspects of inspection support reporting and quality control for major oil and gas companies both within the North Sea and globally.
