Nexans to Provide Umbilicals for Statoil’s Visund Field

Statoil’s Visund oil and gas field is to benefit from standardised fast-track umbilicals developed by Nexans. The field in the Tampen area of the Norwegian North Sea will be the fifth project to use these standard umbilicals. The standardised umbilicals are made up of electrical and fibre optic cables as well as hydraulic and chemical lines. The technical and administrative procedures are standardised, saving time, costs and materials during the project.

Nexans will deliver 830 m of dynamic umbilical cables, made up of 12 16 mm2 quad cables. In addition, Nexans will supply a pull in and hang off assembly and a subsea umbilical termination assembly (UTA).

In November 2012, Nexans was awarded a contract from Statoil to supply static and dynamic umbilicals for three developments on the Norwegian continental shelf: Oseberg Delta field (North Sea), Snohvit gas field (Barents Sea) and Smorbukk South (Norwegian Sea). In the autumn of 2013, the contract was extended to include the delivery of umbilicals for the Gullfaks Rimfaks Valley gas field. In total, Nexans will provide more than 50 kilometres of static and dynamic umbilicals.

Liv Molvik Lundegaard, Nexans’ Project Manager said, “Nexans is looking forward to working with Statoil on the fifth project of this kind. The standardised umbilicals meet Statoil’s administrative and technical requirements, allowing us to provide a consistent and cost-effective service.”

“We are pleased to be working with Statoil again. This contract is a continuation of our long and productive relationship in the Norwegian Sea, and worldwide. Nexans’ technology will help to extend the life of Statoil’s oil and gas fields,” added Dirk Steinbrink, Senior Executive Vice President High Voltage & Underwater Cable Business Group.

The cables will be manufactured at the Nexans plants in Rognan and Halden, Norway. Delivery of the cable and accessories will begin take place Q2 2015.
