Paris, September 3, 2015 – The new super complex at the heart of the future development of the Nasr oil field, offshore from Abu Dhabi in the UAE, will be powered by Nexans’ subsea cables. This follows the award of a contract worth around Euro 90 millions by the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contractor, Hyundai Heavy Industries Co.Ltd (HHI), for Nexans to supply high voltage power cables and infield cables.
The Nasr oil field is located approximately 130 km northwest of Abu Dhabi City in UAE, the world’s seventh largest oil producing country.
HHI is undertaking engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning work for a new super complex serving the Nasr field. The project will comprise a gas treatment platform, a separation platform, an accommodation platform; installation of subsea power and infield cables; modifying an existing manifold tower and two wellhead towers and work for power distribution facilities from the existing Das Island in the Persian Gulf.
For the Nasr project, Nexans is supplying HHI with 132 kV XLPE insulated three-core subsea power cable incorporating three fibre optic elements, together with 11 kV XLPE insulated three-core infield cables, also incorporating three fibre optic elements.
The Nasr cables will be manufactured at Nexans’ specialized facility in Halden Norway.

It also demonstrates the broad scope of our offering for the oil and gas industry with high technology power cables and umbilicals.”
