NOV Flexibles to use FES’ equipment at Statoil’s Mariner

UK oil and gas engineering firm FES International has won a $1,250,000 contract to supply four Diverless Bend Stiffener Connectors to contractor NOV Flexibles.

Diverless Bend Stiffener Connectors (DBSCs) are one of the firm’s most successful product lines enabling the quick, efficient and cost effective installation of bend stiffeners on offshore deep sea drilling operations.

The FES International DBSCs will be used by NOV Flexibles at the Mariner Field, Statoil’s heavy oil development located 70km west of Heimdal in the UK sector of the North Sea. The DBSCs will connect to pipes operating at water depths ranging between 97m and 112m.

FES International has started work on the DBSC contract which will be delivered by 31 October, 2014.

Rob Anderson, managing director at FES International, said: “We have a great track-record working with NOV and are delighted to be on board for such a significant North Sea project. Although this is the first time we’ve worked with Statoil as the main end-user, it’s the latest in a long line of DBSC deals – a product for which demand just keeps on growing.”

The Statoil development is one of the UK’s largest new offshore oil field in over a decade. A further thirty years of production and recoverable oil volumes of 250 million barrels have been predicted at the field.
