Charges also included a probable estimate of the aggregate settlement on potential violations of anti-corruption laws relating past projects.

Revenues for the quarter were down close to 10 percent at $3.3 billion, form $3.7 billion in the prior-year comparable period.

Quarterly order intake was $2.92 billion, down from $2.99 billion – of which subsea division generated $880 million.

For the full-year 2018 TechnipFMC booked net loss of $1.92 billion on revenue of $12.5 billion, against profit of $113 million on revenue of $15 billion.

At the end of the fourth quarter 2018, TechnipFMC backlog was $14.5 billion, including subsea backlog of $6 billion.
