FMC Technologies and Statoil Sign New Subsea Frame Agreement

FMC Technologies has signed a new five-year frame agreement with Statoil ASA to provide subsea equipment and associated services for the North Sea and potential international developments. The agreement also includes two options to extend the contract for two additional years each. FMC Technologies is one of two subsea suppliers who would receive orders against this frame agreement. Statoil estimates the total value of all orders to be placed under the frame agreement to be within a range of $2.6 to $4.4 billion.

Equipment and services related to this frame agreement will be manufactured and supplied from FMC's Kongsberg, Norway facility. The award of this frame agreement does not impact FMC's inbound or backlog. FMC Technologies will record orders when call-offs are received against this frame agreement.

In the past two decades FMC has supplied more than 260 subsea trees to Statoil for 40 separate projects. Recent activity includes the Tordis Subsea Processing project, which is the first full-field subsea separation system to be installed, as well as supporting Statoil's Gjoa and Tyrihans projects in the North Sea.

"This frame agreement is another demonstration of Statoil's commitment to future subsea developments and their continued confidence in FMC to supply quality products on time," said Tore Halvorsen, Senior Vice President, FMC Technologies. "We are excited to once again work together to develop the technologies necessary to take on new subsea opportunities."
