FMC TECHNOLOGIES HAS signed a five-year Enterprise Framework Agreement (EFA) with Shell with an option to extend the agreement for an additional five years. This agreement facilitates to international projects the same mutual benefits that Shell and FMC have enjoyed through a strategic Gulf of Mexico relationship that has existed over the past 17 years.
Under the agreement, Shell's business units in the Americas intend to utilize FMC for all deepwater subsea equipment projects within the scope of the agreement, unless tendering is otherwise required. Specific scope of supply includes subsea trees, mounted controls, processing equipment, manifolds, sled components, jumpers and various other hydraulic, chemical, electrical and control systems. This agreement for deepwater subsea equipment is also available for use by other Shell global business units as may be allowed by local commercial and legal requirements.
"FMC Technologies has had a longstanding alliance with Shell for projects in the Gulf of Mexico," said John Gremp, President and Chief Operating Officer of FMC Technologies. "In addition, we have supported a variety of Shell's international projects, such as Parque das Conchas, Gumusut and a number of other offshore and surface developments. This agreement is a significant addition to our relationship and we are excited about the future prospects it holds."
