FMC's scope of supply includes the manufacture of nine subsea trees, eight wellheads and two six-slot manifolds. FMC will also provide 12 multiphase meters, 10 subsea control modules and associated control systems.

The equipment will be manufactured and assembled at FMC's facilities in Dunfermline, Scotland and Kongsberg, Norway and at FMC's Multi Phase Meters AS (MPM) operation in Stavanger, Norway. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in the first quarter of 2011.

"The Laggan-Tormore field is located in one of the harshest environments of the UK continental shelf," said Tore Halvorsen, FMC's Senior Vice President of Global Subsea Production Systems. "We are pleased that Total has selected our systems and technologies for this highly technical project."
