FMC Technologies, Inc. announced that it has signed a four-year agreement with Petrobras, Brazil's national oil company, for the supply of pre-salt subsea equipment. The total award would result in approximately $1.5 billion in revenue to FMC Technologies if all of the subsea equipment included in the agreement is ordered. The initial call-off has an approximate value of $900 million in revenue to FMC and includes 78 subsea trees.

FMC's total scope of supply could include the delivery of up to 130 subsea trees, subsea multiplex controls and related tools and equipment. The tree systems are for use offshore Brazil in water depths up to 8,200 feet (2,500 meters). The equipment will be engineered at FMC's South American Technology Center and manufactured at FMC's subsea facility, both of which are located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The subsea trees will achieve 70% Brazilian local content and deliveries are scheduled to commence in 2014.

"We have made significant investments in our Brazilian operations to enable large scale product manufacturing and the development of new technologies," said Tore Halvorsen, FMC's Senior Vice President, Subsea Technologies. "Petrobras has awarded more than 500 subsea trees to our operations in Brazil over the past 30 years, and we are pleased to support them in developing their pre-salt reservoirs."
