FMC Technologies, Inc. announced that its Australian subsidiary has signed an agreement with Woodside Energy Ltd. for the design, manufacture and supply of subsea production systems to support the Greater Western Flank (GWF) Phase 1 Project. The contract has a value of approximately $150 million in revenue to FMC Technologies.
The GWF Phase 1 Project will develop the Goodwyn GH and Tidepole fields, and represents the next major development for the Woodside operated North West Shelf Project. The GWF fields are located in water depths of 230 to 425 feet (70 to 130 meters).
