HOUSTON -- StatoilHydro has awarded FMC Technologies a $38-million contract to supply subsea equipment for the Troll B gas injection project in the Norwegian North Sea.

The contract includes two subsea trees and associated flow base systems, wellheads, tubing hangers, and related control and communication systems. All equipment will be manufactured at FMC's Kongsberg, Norway and Dunfermline, Scotland operations with deliveries expected to begin in early 2010.

"StatoilHydro recently announced their intent to employ a gas injection system in an effort to increase oil recovery on the Troll B platform by as much as 17 MMbbl, and we are pleased to be a part of this important project," says Tore Halvorsen, FMC's senior VP of global subsea production systems.
