FMC Technologies to Supply Subsea Systems for Cardamom Deep Project

FMC Technologies has signed an agreement with Shell to supply subsea and topside systems for the Cardamom Deep project in the Gulf of Mexico.

Cardamom Deep is a subsea tie-back to Shell's Auger Tension Leg Platform. The field is located in Garden Banks Block 426 in the eastern Gulf of Mexico in water depths of approximately 2,860 feet (872 meters). FMC's scope of supply includes five subsea production trees, each rated at 15,000 psi. The company will also manufacture and provide subsea and topside controls, manifold and tie-in equipment, and other systems and services. Deliveries will commence in the third quarter of 2011.

"FMC has supported several recent Shell projects in this area, including the Serrano, Oregano, Habanero, and Llano projects," said John Gremp, President and Chief Operating Officer of FMC Technologies. "We are pleased to support the Cardamom Deep field, the latest project awarded under our Gulf of Mexico alliance with Shell."
