As one of Statoil's fast-track fields, FMS is to supply seven trees, wellhead systems, two protection structures, manifolds, plus controls and related equipment..
Deliveries are due to start in the second quarter next year, from FMC factories in Scotland and Norway.
Tore Halvorsen, FMC's senior vice president for subsea technologies noted that Gullfaks South is now Europe’s largest subsea tieback development.
Gullfaks South, in blocks 34/.10 and 12, lies in water depths between 130 and 220 metres (425 – 720 feet).
Statoil is planning to use subsea compression at Gullfaks South to recover an additional 22 million barrels of oil equivalent from the Gullfaks South Brent reservoir, with a NOK 3 billion investment and the project is due to come onstream in autumn 2015.
In April, Statoil received a go-ahead from the Norwegian Parliament to proceed with another subsea compression project at the Asgard field.
