FES International Secures Culzean Contract

FES International has secured a contract from National Oilwell Varco (NOV) to supply equipment for the Maersk Oil-operated Culzean field in the UK North Sea.

The project includes the design, manufacture and supply of the several automatic Diverless Bend Stiffener Connectors (DBSC).

Ian Latimer, technical director at FES International, said: “This project was particularly challenging in terms of delivery times and cost parameters, however our well established relationships within our supply chain and our streamlined internal processes mean we have been able to deliver on time and on budget for NOV.”

The Culzean field, which is one of the largest recent gas discoveries in the North Sea, is a high-pressure/high-temperature gas field, located around 145 miles east of Aberdeen.

The Culzean field was discovered in 2008. The water depth is approximately 88 meters and the reservoir is located around 4,300 meters below sea level.

First gas is currently expected in 2019, with potential to meet around 5 per cent of UK gas consumption in 2020/21.
