"Mad Dog Phase 2 is the first project awarded under our global agreement with BP to provide technologies and services for their worldwide subsea development projects," said Tore Halvorsen, FMC Technologies' senior vice president of Subsea Technologies, in a released statement. "We have a long history of supporting BP's global offshore technology requirements, and today's announcement expands our support of their Gulf of Mexico projects."
