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).
