Nexans, a worldwide expert in the cable industry, has been awarded an 8 million Euro contract by Statoil to supply the static umbilicals for the Gullfaks Rimfaksdalen project in the Norwegian North Sea. This is the fourth Statoil project in quick succession to feature the new standardized fast-track umbilical design developed by Nexans and follows the contracts awarded in 2012 for the Oseberg Delta field (North Sea), the Sn?hvit gas field (Barents Sea) and the Smorbukk Sor (Norwegian Sea).

Nexans umbilicals chosen by Statoil for Gullfaks Rimfaksdalen gas project in the Norwegian North SeaNexans’ specialized facility in Halden, Norway will manufacture a total of 9 km of static umbilicals to be deployed at water depths of around 137 metres to provide the subsea tie-back between the Rutil and Opal gas discoveries and the existing Gullfaks A platform. Statoil’s new standardized umbilical design, that integrates hydraulic, data and fibre optic services, is ideally suited to this project, as it has been developed specifically by Nexans to provide a consistent and cost-efficient solution for fast-track projects, such as tie-ins to existing infrastructure, as well as other kinds of subsea oil and gas projects.

“Winning this fourth standardized umbilicals contract for Statoil confirms the success of this design in both reducing project costs and lead times, as well as increasing the repeatability of engineering, procurement and fabrication”, says Krister Granlie, Vice President Hybrid Underwater Cables Division, Nexans Norway. “It is a perfect example of the fully flexible and comprehensive approach we offer for our subsea customers, with solutions ranging from standardized designs to bespoke umbilicals purpose designed for specific requirements."
