High production levels and improved uptime for the life of the field
Truly committed to being our customers’ trusted life-of-field partner, FMC Technologies provides the tools, vessels and technological expertise to improve uptime, lower lifecycle costs and increase recovery for the life of the field.
Our capabilities include concept selection, FEED studies and field development (through Forsys Subsea, in alliance with Technip), installation, asset management, production optimization, field inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR), and well access and intervention services.
Expertise that delivers 99% rig uptime
We bring more than 20 years of subsea installation experience, representing successful completion of numerous projects of all sizes in increasingly complex and challenging environments and in all parts of the world. We measure our success by rig uptime and we maintain 99 percent uptime by going out fully prepared.
Focused on efficiency and cost effectiveness, our engineers, technicians and project managers plan and direct the technical onshore and offshore activities, resources and operations required for a successful installation. Offering round-the-clock coverage, our well-trained team performs offshore readiness reviews and assists the operator throughout the assignment to assure quality and quick problem resolution.
Optimum asset utilization and performance
Our asset management services ensure optimum equipment and tool utilization, while maintaining industry safety and regulatory compliance. Our experienced personnel manage, maintain, upgrade and lengthen the reliable life of customers’ assets. This includes support for FMC Technologies-supplied as well as customer-owned equipment and tools. FMC Technologies has invested in one of the largest inventories of subsea completion and workover rental tool fleets in the industry.
Additionally, our Condition and Performance Monitoring (CPM) system can provide real-time data to determine the integrity of subsea systems and equipment, enabling proactive and condition-based maintenance and avoiding costly unplanned repairs.
Our services include: Tool Management, Equipment Refurbishment, Equipment and Inventory Tracking, Condition and Performance Monitoring, Processing Equipment Related Maintenance and Rental Tools
Data-driven reservoir productivity
FMC Technologies helps operators maximize the performance of subsea production systems using a suite of flow assurance services, real-time surveillance, predictive analytics and flow modeling software.
During early-phase planning, flow assurance experts help optimize the field architecture and define flow assurance strategies through field studies and simulations. Our FlowManager™ software provides accurate production and injection flow rates, and advice for optimal choke setting and well routing. Once in the operation phase, the software can easily be expanded to include real-time field monitoring for potential flow assurance issues, and be complemented by an FMC Technologies’ operation support center, which provides expert analysis and advice 24/7.
FlowManager™ has been used since 1995 and is currently operating on 450 wells distributed on 20 fields worldwide. Our operation support center is monitoring 1.2 M barrels of oil and 200 millions standard cubic meters of gas per day, which is equivalent to 60 percent of Norway's total oil production.
Our services include: FlowManager™, Instrumentation Upgrades, Brownfield System Engineering, Production Operations Support and Processing Related Optimization.
Responsive, efficient and reliable service
Over the course of a field’s life, equipment must be maintained, exchanged or adjusted as a result of wear or increased safety and regulatory requirements. FMC Technologies places the highest importance on safety, efficiency and reliability while performing IMR. Typical operations are inspection, maintenance and repair of control and instrumentation modules, chokes, flow modules, tie-in and connections, and processing equipment.
Through FTO Services (our joint venture with Edison Chouest Offshore), we can take on the coordination of vessel, technicians and tools to deliver a complete and more efficient IMR project.
Our services include: Equipment Intervention Support, Integrated Vessel-Based Intervention and Subsea Processing Intervention
Technology and experience in the harshest environments
As fields mature, the need to maintain production and increase oil recovery drives demand for well access and intervention services. With more than 50 well access systems delivered and more than 300 Riserless Light Well Interventions (RLWI) performed in the last 10 years,
FMC Technologies has the capabilities and experience to deliver well access and intervention services in the harshest and deepest subsea environments.
Through FTO Services, and the new Island Performer vessel, we offer RLWI and other vessel-based services, at virtually half the cost of rig-based operations.
Our services include: Exploration Wellheads, Production and Completion Related Services, Rig-Based Intervention, Riserless Light Well Intervention, TTRD, Tree Commissioning, and Plug and Abandonment
