Aker Solutions has won a global framework agreement to deliver engineering and project management services at BP-operated subsea oil and gas fields.

The contract has a fixed period of five years and may be extended by two years. It covers subsea engineering services, asset integrity management and operations support.

 


FMC Technologies

The largest provider of subsea equipment to the industry, FMC Technologies, could see its 2016 Subsea revenue slashed by up to $1 billion as analysts forecast a very challenging year for the oilfield service and equipment market.

The Houston-based company estimates its 2016 Subsea revenue at about $3.6 billion versus last year’s revenue of $4.5 billion (71% of the company’s revenue in 2015).
