Cameron has won an order for the supply of subsea production systems for a deepwater and offshore gas processing and pipeline project in the South China Sea.

The project will include subsea equipment, as well as an agreement to provide additional services across the life of the field.

The deliveries are slated to begin in late 2011 and continue through 2012.

Cameron president and CEO Jack Moore said that at water depths of nearly 5,000ft, this represents the deepest prospect to date in the Asia Pacific region.

"We are pleased to have the opportunity to provide Cameron’s equipment and technology in support of this important development," Moore said.

The company said that this is the first major subsea project in China for Cameron that represents a significant market opportunity.
