The Energy Products Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation has been awarded a contract by Leighton International to supply the subsea power cable system for the Iraq Crude Oil Export Expansion Project (ICOEEP)

The order consists of 37 miles (60 km) of 36kV subsea power cables, termination hardware and site support. The cables will be constructed at the division’s manufacturing location in Tønsberg, Norway, and delivered by the end of June 2011. 

The combination of an existing business relationship and a local presence in the Middle East contributed to the award of this fast-track delivery. 

ICOEEP is an important strategic project for the Iraqi Ministry of Oil (MoO). The crude oil facility of southern Iraq currently exports approximately 1.8 MMBOPD from onshore facilities. The Iraqui MoO plans to further develop offshore loading facilities to enable export capability of 4.5 MMBOPD within 5 years. The ICOEEP Project is designed to achieve this objective. 

The Energy Products Division of Parker Hannifin, based in Stafford, Texas in the United States, provides innovative project solutions (marine hose, power cables, mooring lines, high pressure hose, custom umbilicals, surveying, metrology, and service) with customer-focused project management, for global energy recovery. 

The Energy Products Division is a unit of Parker Hannifin Corporation’s Fluid Connectors Group. The Group is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, and is the world’s leading producer of tube fittings, rubber and thermoplastic hose and fittings, brass fittings and valves, quick-connect couplings and assembly tools.
