FMC Technologies has signed an agreement with Shell Offshore to supply subsea and topside systems for the West Boreas field development located in Mississippi Canyon Block 762 in the Gulf of Mexico, in water depths of approximately 3,100ft.

FMC’s scope of supply includes six subsea production trees, each rated at 15,000psi.

The company will also manufacture and provide subsea and topside controls, one manifold and related systems and equipment, and deliveries will commence in the third quarter of 2012.

FMC president and chief operating officer John Gremp said that West Boreas will be the first field to utilize FMC’s 15,000psi enhanced vertical deepwater tree systems.

"It is also the first tie-back to Shell’s new Olympus tension leg platform, and we will support this development with our leading subsea systems and services," Gremp said.

FMC is a provider of technology solutions for the energy industry.
