FMC Technologies has secured a contract from Hibernia Management and Development Company (HMDC) to manufacture and supply subsea systems for the Hibernia Southern Extension Project.

The Hibernia Southern Extension Project involves the expansion of the Hibernia field, which is located on the Grand Banks, approximately 315km south-east of St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Under the contract, FMC will supply six subsea injection trees and wellheads, one manifold and associated control systems.

All of the equipment will be manufactured at the company’s St John’s and Houston operations, and deliveries are expected to start in the second quarter of 2013.

FMC Technologies president and CEO John Gremp said his company looks forward to supporting ExxonMobil Canada and its co-venturers’ efforts, and expanding its technologies in Canada’s offshore fields.
