Nexans dispatches first ‘standard’ Statoil umbilical

Offshore staff

PARIS – Nexans has delivered the first of four standard umbilicals ordered by Statoil for subsea tiebacks offshore Norway.

The first umbilical will be deployed at the Oseberg Delta field in the North Sea.

All four umbilicals comprise electrical and fiber optic cables, as well as hydraulic and chemical lines. The standardized “package solution” should bring savings in time, cost, and materials during execution of the projects, Nexans claims.

In December 2012, Statoil initially ordered static and dynamic umbilicals for Oseberg Delta and Snøhvit in the Barents Sea and Smørbukk South in the Norwegian Sea. Last fall it expanded its order to include umbilicals for the Gullfaks Rimfaks Valley gas field in the North Sea.

In total, the company will provide 50 km (31 mi) of static and dynamic umbilicals, all manufactured in Halden, Norway.
