Forsys Subsea becomes operational
FMC Technologies and Technip informed that Forsys Subsea, a 50/50 joint venture, has received all regulatory approvals.
The parties closed the transaction making Forsys Subsea operational on June 1, 2015, the company informed in a statement.
Forsys Subsea is a joint venture formed as part of a broader alliance between FMC Technologies and Technip that unites the skills and capabilities of two subsea majors to redefine the way subsea fields are designed, delivered and maintained.
By combining the industry-leading technologies of the parent companies, Forsys Subsea will reduce the interfaces of the subsea umbilical, riser and flowline systems (SURF) and subsea production and processing systems (SPS). It will also simplify the seabed layout, thereby reducing complexity, accelerating time to first oil, and enabling higher sustainable field production. This unique combination will drive a new, step-change approach to how equipment designs and installation methods converge in a new generation of subsea architecture.
The company is headquartered in London, with regional hubs in Houston, Oslo, Paris, Rio de Janeiro and Singapore.
The Forsys Subsea leadership team includes Rasmus Sunde (FMC Technologies) as CEO, Alain Marion (Technip) as Chief Technology Officer, Arild Selvig (FMC Technologies) as Senior Vice President and Head of Front-End Engineering, and Gerald Bouhourd (Technip) as Senior Vice President and Head of Life of Field.
