StatoilHydro Taps Sevan for Cylindrical FPSO Feasibility Study

StatoilHydro has awarded Sevan Marine a contract to conduct a study focused on scale model testing aimed at verifying the feasibility of the Sevan cylindrical FPSO using steel catenary risers (SCRs) for harsh deepwater application.

Sevan has earlier this year carried out a study for StatoilHydro containing analysis work on the same topic.

The study will be performed during last quarter 2009/first quarter 2010.
