A subsea engineering company in south east Northumberland has secured a $2m contract.

Ashington-based FES International has won the deal with Saipem, for its Egina Project off the coast of Nigeria.

It will supply bend stiffener connectors (BSCs) to oil and gas contractor Saipem.

The BSCs will be used by global energy company Total at its third deep offshore development off Nigeria.

FES International provides a range of BSCs to assist the installation of bend stiffeners on offshore deep sea drilling operations.

Rob Anderson, managing director at FES International, said: “We have a successful track-record of working with Saipem and are delighted to have been chosen by them once again.

“Repeat business like this is an affirmation of the quality of our products and services.”

FES International has started work on the BSC contract, which will be delivered by May 17.
