The BSCs will be used by Total at its third deep offshore development — Egina project — off the coast of the West African country. The field is currently under development and the production is scheduled to begin by the end of 2017.

The project consists of five dynamic umbilicals and the BSCs will connect them to the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

FES International provides a range of BSCs to assist the installation of bend stiffeners on offshore deepsea drilling operations. Products are tailored to suit the specific and individual requirements of both the project and the end user, the company said.

FES International managing director Rob Anderson said, “We’ve provided fluid transfer solutions for Total projects all over the world, such as CLOV, Martin Linge and Ichthys and we’re proud to be adding this one to the growing list.”

FES International has begun work on the BSC contract, which is expected to be delivered in the West African country by 17 May 2015.
