FMS, a leading independent supplier of mooring equipment to the global oil and gas industry, has secured a three-year contract with BP on Aug. 22 for the provision of mooring equipment for its North Sea operations.
Established in 2009, Aberdeen-based FMS will commence the contract in July 2019.
“This award demonstrates our capability and capacity to support the mooring equipment requirements for one of the leading operators in the UKCS,” Steven Brown, managing director for FMS, said.
Providing expertise in marine, technical, positioning and mooring equipment services, FMS’ company-owned fleet of mooring equipment encompasses the latest design and technology available in the industry.
As part of its growth strategy, FMS continues to invest heavily in mooring equipment which will be available to the market for sale or rental.
The discovery adds to the previous recoverable resource estimate of approximately 9 billion oil equivalent barrels.
Drilled by the Leiv Eirkisson drilling rig about 10 km (6 miles) northwest of the Balder Field, wildcat well 25/7-8 S hit several oil- and gas-bearing intervals, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate says.
