FMC Technologies Inks 4-Year Contract with Petrobras
FMC Technologies has signed a four-year subsea manifold frame agreement with Petrobras. The award is expected to result in approximately $300 million in revenue to FMC Technologies if all of the subsea equipment included in the agreement is ordered. The agreement provides assurance that a minimum of 75 percent of the contracted equipment will be ordered during the contract's four-year call-off period.
FMC's scope of supply includes the manufacture of up to eight subsea manifolds with subsea multiplex control systems. All equipment will be engineered and manufactured at FMC's facility in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2012.
"In February, Petrobras awarded FMC a long-term subsea tree frame agreement," said John Gremp, FMC's President and Chief Operating Officer. "Today's four-year manifold agreement further strengthens our ability to support their ongoing and future activities, including deepwater and pre-salt developments."
