First Subsea Wins UK Merit Award for Deepwater Mooring

First Subsea has received a Special Merit Award for its contribution to the UK's competitiveness in the global, deepwater oil and gas market, from Subsea UK, the trade body representing British subsea industry.

Presented at the recent Subsea UK Business Awards, as part of the Subsea 2010 conference in Aberdeen, the Special Merit Award recognizes First Subsea's success in mooring some of the industry's leading deepwater oil and gas projects in the Gulf of Mexico and Africa, and its world leading forged metals research and development of new fibre rope mooring line connectors.

"We are delighted to have received the Special Merit Award for our work so far in deepwater mooring," said First Subsea general manager, Brian Green. "Our company's vision is to provide oil and gas companies with the mooring technology they will need as they go to even deeper, ultra-deepwater depths; in so doing we are continually raising the engineering performance standards for our mooring systems."
