The umbilical will be delivered in 2Q21 and will connect the Elgood subsea well to the Blythe platform, helping to optimise both production and control with a cost-effective solution.
The Elgood field is part of Independent Oil and Gas plc’s (IOG) Core Project Phase 1, which will also involve the development of the Southwark (part of the Vulcan Satellites) and Blythe field. The project is located in the southern North Sea in water depths between 20 m and 30 m and is 50% owned and operated by IOG, the remainder by CalEnergy Resources Limited.
JDR will manufacture the umbilical, topside terminations, and additional subsea equipment at its state-of-the-art Hartlepool facility, with the hydraulic hoses and LV cables being manufactured in JDR’s Littleport facility.
Rory Graham, Sales Manager at JDR, commented: “This contract marks another step in our thriving relationship with contractors and end-users in the North Sea, and we’re delighted to be able to continue that. We are proud to be able to deliver yet another UK-based project for a UK tieback, as we continue to increase our involvement with local partners.
“This contract is a result of our continued success and consistent high-service levels for similar projects – including four with Subsea 7 in the last 18 months.”
