Throughout the history of the oil and gas industry, the Gulf of Mexico has continually presented some of the world’s most promising field discoveries. This trend has been driven most recently by rapid growth in the deepwater sector. As subsea technology has progressed to make deepwater fields both technically feasible and cost-effective, the Gulf of Mexico has become a focal point for such developments. To meet the needs of this challenging market, FMC Technologies has been at the forefront of providing innovative solutions for well systems up to 15,000 psi and has been awarded several leading edge projects such as Shell Perdido and Petrobras Cascade/Chinook.
FMC’s client portfolio has continually expanded in North America and includes several alliance partnerships. Major operators such as Shell, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and BP continue to have a significant presence, beyond these majors, companies such as Anadarko, LLOG, Murphy, and Petrobras are FMC Technologies customers.
