CNR International has granted FMC Technologies a subsea equipment order for the Baobab field. The scope of supply includes six subsea trees, eight wellheads, three manifolds and a subsea control system including subsea distribution systems and associated topside control systems.

"FMC Technologies is pleased to support CNR International in its ongoing development of the Baobab field," said Tore Halvorsen, FMC Technologies' senior vice president of Subsea Technologies, in a statement. "This subsea production system provides CNR International with the subsea technologies needed to enable further development of the field."

The Baobab oil and gas field is situated in Block CI-40 West Africa about 16 miles (25 kilometers) offshore from the Ivory Coast. Development of the Baobab field was approved in 2003. The field commenced production in the second half of 2005 and is currently producing 65,000 barrels of oil per day and 15 million cubic feet per day.

The equipment is slated for delivery in 2014.
