Hybrid power steel umbilical for North Sea development

Oilfield Technology,

JDR has won a contract for the design and manufacture of a hybrid power steel umbilical from Wintershall Noordzee B.V. This umbilical will be deployed to the Ravn field development in the North Sea.

Long-term well testing off the Danish coast

JDR’s scope of work includes delivery of an 18.2 km umbilical, which will provide power and control, connecting a new platform to an existing platform for long-term well testing off the Danish coast. The composite umbilical is comprised of hydraulic hoses, super duplex steel tubes, MV power cores, and fibre optic cables. Additionally, JDR will provide the subsea hardware as well as lifecycle support through its Global Service division.

Delivery in 2015

The umbilical will be manufactured and loaded out at JDR’s deepwater, quayside Hartlepool facility and will be delivered to the Ravn field in the North Sea. Delivery is scheduled for the Q3, 2015.

Carl Pilmer, EMEA Umbilical Sales Director for JDR, commented, “We are extremely proud to be working with Wintershall on this Ravn project. We have a long history of umbilical and cable delivery to North Sea developments. This project is yet another testament to JDR’s design and manufacture expertise.”
