Nexans Secures 10-Year Umbilicals Agreement with BP (UK)

Nexans, a worldwide leading expert in the cable industry, has secured a 10-year global frame agreement with BP International Limited, UK to supply umbilicals, DEH (direct electrical heating) systems, accessories and services for various oil and gas projects worldwide.

The agreement runs from 2012 to 2022. It covers the design, manufacture and supply of bespoke umbilicals that will carry fluid, power, control and telecommunication services for new subsea oil and gas projects together with DEH systems that provide flow assurance in pipelines.

Nexans has had two umbilical frame agreements with BP Exploration and Production Inc., one secured in 2003 and the other in 2009 for deep water umbilical projects in the Gulf of Mexico.

“We are delighted to secure this major long-term umbilical/DEH frame agreement with BP. It further cements Nexans’ place in the market as a key strategic supplier of subsea systems for demanding offshore oil and gas projects across the world,” says Ragnvald Graff, Sales & Marketing Director, Hybrid Underwater Cable Division, Nexans. “The key factors in winning this latest agreement with BP included our proven technical and organizational capabilities, our well-established manufacturing capacity to meet the required production schedules for on-time delivery and our attention to quality and HSE performance.”

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
