Pan Pandora is an offshore oil and gas field located in water depths of approximately 950ft (290mt) in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. The award also includes options for the supply of subsea production systems for three additional fields. All equipment will be based on a subsea standard solution designed by Statoil and FMC.

FMC’s scope of supply for Pan Pandora includes the manufacture of four subsea production trees, wellheads, choke modules and subsea control modules. FMC will also supply one manifold structure and associated tools and control systems.

The equipment will be manufactured and assembled at FMC’s facilities in Scotland and Norway. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2011.

Tore Halvorsen, senior vice president of global subsea production systems at FMC, said: “We value our strong relationship with Statoil and are pleased to support Statoil’s fast-track strategy.

“FMC’s experience and success in delivering standardized solutions will help Statoil meet its goal of reducing the time it takes to achieve first oil by approximately 50%.”
