FMC Technologies, Inc. has signed an agreement with Statoil ASA for the manufacture and supply of subsea production equipment to support the Marulk field. The award, a call-off from FMC’s existing frame agreement with Statoil, has a value of approximately US$ 62 million in revenue to FMC Technologies.
The Marulk field is located in the Norwegian Sea, approximately 18 miles (30 km) southwest of the Norne field at a water depth of 1200 ft (365 m). The initial development will consist of two wells tied back to the Norne floating production, storage and offloading vessel.
Supplying the equipment
FMC’s scope of supply includes the manufacture of two subsea trees, one manifold, one template, subsea control modules and associated topside controls and connection equipment. The systems will be manufactured and assembled at FMC’s operations in Kongsberg, Norway, and Dunfermline, Scotland. Initial deliveries are scheduled to commence in Q2 2011.
Eni Norge AS is operator of the Marulk field. The other partners include Statoil Petroleum AS and DONG E&P Norge.
