FMC Technologies, Inc. announced today that it has received a subsea equipment order from ExxonMobil for its Julia development.
The Julia field is located in the Gulf of Mexico Walker Ridge area in approximately 7,000 feet (2,100 meter) water depth. FMC Technologies’ scope of supply includes six subsea trees, a manifold and associated tie-in equipment.
“FMC Technologies is pleased to provide ExxonMobil with subsea systems for this offshore project,” said Tore Halvorsen, FMC Technologies’ Senior Vice President, Subsea Technologies. “We look forward to supporting ExxonMobil as they overcome the technological challenges of this ultra deepwater development.”
ExxonMobil and its partner Statoil last week decided to proceed with the Julia development. The development is estimated to take approximately three years, and it is expected to cost approximately $4 billion. The partners each own 50% of the field.
Julia will be a subsea tieback to the Jack and St. Malo floating production platform, located approximately 15 miles away, which is operated by Chevron U.S.A. Inc.
