FMC nets Shell work in US

Subsea manifold06 June 2013 – FMC Technologies has scooped yet another subsea contract in the US Gulf of Mexico, this time from Anglo-Dutch supermajor Shell.

The Houston-based contractor has received the order for subsea equipment for Shell’s portfolio of projects in the region, it said on Wednesday.

The scope of the work includes 12 enhanced verticle deep-water trees and controls, FMC said in the brief statement which failed to disclose the contract value.

Wednesday’s subsea award follows on from another on Tuesday from Anadarko Petroleum, also in the Gulf of Mexico. The contractor will work at the US independent’s Heidelberg field development in the Green Canyon area providing two manifolds and five enhanced horizontal subsea trees for the development in 1618 metres of water.

FMC will also be providing three mounted controls and associated tools and equipment, but also declined to reveal a contract price.

In late May FMC scooped a subsea contract from Shell for work at the Anglo-Dutch supermajor’s Stones development project in the ultra-deepwater Walker Ridge area US Gulf.

Earlier in the month it won a contract from ExxonMobil to provide subsea equipment at one of the supermajor’s large Gulf of Mexico plays. It is to provide six subsea trees as well as a manifold and associated tie-in equipment for the ultra-deepwater Julia development, also in the Walker Ridge area of the Gulf.
