Nexans has secured an order from OneSubsea to supply umbilical and accessories for Greater Enfield development off the coast of Exmouth, Western Australia.
The project, worth around EUR 20 million, will be Nexans’ first to be installed in Australia, the company informed.
The umbilical will be manufactured at Nexans’ plants in Halden and Rognan, and will be delivered in January 2018. It will be installed at a depth down to 915 meters.
Dirk Steinbrink, senior executive vice president High Voltage & Underwater Cable Business Group at Nexans said, “We are excited to expand our reach around the world and our strong relationship with OneSubsea. Nexans has pioneered the development of power umbilicals which are a cost-effective way of supplying power, control and other functions to the sea floor.”
The Greater Enfield project is a joint venture between Woodside Energy and Mitsui E&P Australia. The oil field is 60 km from the coast of Exmouth. The oil field will be developed using a 31 km subsea tie-back to the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility.
The six subsea production wells and six water injection wells will produce around 69 million barrels of oil equivalent (MMboe). OneSubsea will supply subsea pumps for the project.
