Subsea Technologies

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

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.
