FMC Wins PEMEX Contract
FMC Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has signed a three-year contract with Pemex Exploration and Production for the manufacture and supply of surface wellheads to support its drilling and well maintenance programs in the Gulf of Mexico. The award is expected to result in approximately $36 million in revenue to FMC Technologies if all of the equipment included in the contract is ordered. The agreement provides assurance that at least 40 percent of the contractual value will be ordered by Pemex during the three-year call-off period.
FMC's scope of supply includes approximately 150 surface wellheads, installation and supervision services for Pemex's operations in its Northeast and Southwest Marine Regions of the Gulf of Mexico. The equipment will be supplied from FMC's operation in Mexico. Deliveries will begin during the fourth quarter of 2011.
"We appreciate the opportunity to extend our support of Pemex," said Johan Pfeiffer, FMC's Vice President, Global Surface Wellhead. "FMC's subsea systems have played a significant role in their Cantarell development for several years, and today's announcement expands that relationship to other fields with our reliable surface wellhead systems and support services."
