A particularly challenging project …

  • due to high temperatures (+130°C at the well heads)
  • due to high water pressure (10,000 psi)

… which require very thick steel tube walls

Nexans' solutions:

  • Two different umbilical designs to connect the fixed platform to the subsea manifold and the manifold to the individual well heads
  • Total length of umbilicals: around 59 km
  • These umbilicals will be used to provide electronic control of systems on the seabed and hydraulic and chemical liquid injection
