ANSYS, FMC Technologies to Jointly Develop Simulation Software (USA)
- Business & Finance
ANSYS and FMC Technologies have executed a long-term strategic agreement for simulation software that can standardize design analysis and provide scalability for growth.
The energy industry is under incredible pressure to increase efficiency, maximize recovery and decrease environmental impact. Furthermore, production equipment such as subsea trees, manifolds and wellheads must operate reliably under extreme conditions throughout increasingly longer lifetimes. In addressing these concerns, ANSYS solutions provide multiphysics depth and breadth, accuracy, and high fidelity to deliver innovative products and processes.
“As oil and gas operations move to deeper water and more remote sites, the known engineering challenges become far more complex and require innovative new engineering solutions. Through this agreement, ANSYS and FMC can work together to address current and future industry issues,” said Ahmad Haidari, global director, energy and process industries for ANSYS.
FMC Technologies, Inc. is a leading global provider of technology solutions for the energy industry. Named by FORTUNE Magazine as the World’s Most Admired Oil and Gas Equipment, Service Company in 2012, the Company has approximately 14,900 employees and operates 27 production facilities in 16 countries. FMC Technologies designs, manufactures and services technologically sophisticated systems and products such as subsea production and processing systems, surface wellhead systems, high pressure fluid control equipment, measurement solutions, and marine loading systems for the oil and gas industry.
