Subsea Technologies

Subsea Technologies fourth quarter revenue was $1.4 billion, up 13 percent from the prior-year quarter.  

Subsea Technologies operating profit was up 44 percent from the prior-year quarter to $209.5 million primarily as a result of volume growth and improved execution.  The revenue and operating profit also includes a $23.3 million net benefit associated with a retroactive Angolan tax adjustment.

Subsea Technologies inbound orders for the fourth quarter were $1.0 billion and backlog was $6.0 billion.

Surface Technologies

Surface Technologies fourth quarter revenue was $489.0 million, up 10 percent from the prior-year quarter driven by higher volume in surface wellhead.
