STAVANGER -- FMC has contracted Scana Subsea for machined riser forgings. These will be incorporated into new (replacement) high-pressure production risers for Statoil’s Snorre tension leg platform in the Norwegian North Sea.

The scope includes forging and machining of production riser joints for 10 riser systems and additional spare components, with an option for additional riser systems. The contract value for the first 10 riser systems is $9.4 million.

Manufacturing will start immediately, with deliveries scheduled to start from late 2010 through 2012 in batch consignments. Sister company Scana Steel Björneborg will also be involved in the program.

Scana Industrier CEO Rolf Roverud describes this as a breakthrough contract for Scana Subsea, which was formed to address the riser market. “We expect our order inflow within oil and gas will increase significantly in 2010,” he adds.
