FMC Tapped by Hydro to Supply Real-Time Flow Assurance for Ormen Lange

FMC Technologies has signed a contract with Hydro to supply a real-time flow assurance system for the massive Ormen Lange gas development in the Norwegian Sea.

FMC Technologies' FlowManager is an analysis software application that provides operators with continuous insight to critical production variables to monitor and troubleshoot Ormen Lange's flow assurance challenges.

The project will be executed from FMC Technologies' Subsea Systems offices in Asker, Norway in the engineering phase and following the onsite installation, will be supported from FMC's Operations Support Center in Asker.

"This analysis software gives our customers real-time access to our flow management and assurance experts where system diagnosis can truly be an integrated operation between operators and company specialists" said Peter D. Kinnear, Executive Vice President, FMC Technologies.
