HOUSTON, Dec. 28 -- Statoil let a $75 million contract to FMC Technologies Inc. for the manufacture and supply of subsea production equipment for the Vigdis North-East development off Norway.
Vigdis North-East is a fast-track oil and gas field in about 920 ft of water.
FMC will supply and manufacture four subsea trees, one manifold, subsea and topside control systems, and an umbilical. For the equipment, FMC will base the design of its standardized solution for Statoil. FMC expects deliveries to start in third-quarter 2011.
Vigdis North-East along with PanPandora, Katla, and Gygrid are the four fields in Statoil's first wave of fast-track projects (OGJ Online, Nov. 12, 2010).
