Nexans has further extended its long-standing relationship with the Subsea Integration Alliance (SIA) by winning a major contract to design, manufacture and supply 44 km of steel tube umbilicals and accessories for the Bacalhau ultra-deepwater oilfield development project.

Equinor’s offshore project in Brazil is targeting pre-salt reservoirs in the Santos Basin estimated to contain up to 2 billion boe recoverable reserves.

The SIA formed between Subsea 7 and OneSubsea is responsible for the subsea, umbilical, risers and flowlines (SURF) front-end engineering and design (FEED) contracts for the Bacalhau project. Nexans’s specialised facility in Halden, Norway, will provide the SIA with steel tube umbilicals to provide vital services for subsea equipment operating at water depths down to 2100 m. This includes 2.5 km of gas-lift umbilical, 35 km of static umbilical, 6.9 km of dynamic umbilical and accessories.

Nexans is scheduled to deliver the Bacalhau umbilicals in 4Q22.
