The systems will be used in Total’s Pazflor project, located in Block 17 deepwater offshore Angola. Sociedade Nacional de Combustiveis de Angola (Sonangol) is the block’s concessionaire. In addition to Total E&P Angola, other partners in the block are Esso Exploration Angola Block 17, BP Exploration Angola, and StatoilHydro.

The Pazflor project targets development of hydrocarbons in water depths between approximately 600 meters and 1,200 meters. The overall development currently consists of 49 subsea wells connected via subsea production lines, injection lines and risers to a moored floating production, storage and offloading vessel.

FMC said that its scope of supply includes three gas-liquid separation systems as well as 49 subsea trees and wellhead systems. In addition, FMC will supply other critical operational equipment while providing installation and startup services.

Deliveries are expected to be completed over a multi-year period and are expected to commence in 2009. Revenues on the project are expected to be recognized beginning in early 2008.
