HOUSTON -- FMC Technologies has constructed a global technology center at its Houston campus. The company says the center will enhance its ability to develop innovative equipment and services for customers worldwide.

The building will house product technical management teams and core technology groups made up of mechanical and electrical engineers, designers, metallurgists, material scientists, chemists, welding engineers, and other specialists required for the design and verification of high performance deepwater equipment.

The facility provides engineers and researchers with tools to strengthen global collaboration, enhance communication and productivity, and increase efficiency, the company says. The building also houses a new training center.

Among other activities, specialist teams at the center will support development of technologies to produce hydrocarbons from high pressure/high temperature (HP/HT) reservoirs, and ultra-deepwater fields. In addition, the center will serve as FMC’s global hub for the development of concepts and hardware that reduce the total cost of ownership of onshore, offshore, and subsea fields during their producing life, the company says.
