    FMC wins trees for Gunnison field

    Projects and Operations // February 15, 2002
    FMC Technologies has announced that its FMC Energy Systems business has been chosen by Kerr-McGee Corp to provide subsea trees and associated services for the Gunnison field area project in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Located in water depths of more than 3,100ft (945m), Gunnison includes Garden Banks blocks 667, 668 and 669.

    The Gunnison area is due to be developed using a truss spar similar to those used in the development of Kerr-McGee's Nansen and Boomvang fields in the Gulf of Mexico. FMC Energy Systems has provided equipment for those developments as well.

    The Gunnison Spar will be designed for daily production of 40,000 barrels of oil and 200 million cubic feet of natural gas. Initial production from the development is expected in early 2004. The subsea tree system for Gunnison is expected to be producedat FMC Energy Systems' facilities in Houston. Delivery of the trees is scheduled to commence in the fourth quarter of 2002.
