Nexans Delivers Umbilicals for Statoil’s Oseberg Delta

Oil and gas extraction on the Norwegian continental shelf has been given a boost after Nexans recently delivered the first of four “Statoil Standard” umbilicals ordered by the company in 2012. The first umbilical will be employed at the Oseberg Delta field in the Norwegian part of the North Sea.

Nexans’ specialized facility in Halden, Norway.

The “Statoil Standard” Umbilicals are made up of electrical and fibre optic cables, in addition to hydraulic and chemical lines. The standardised technical and administrative procedures developed over the course of the Oseberg project will save time, cost and materials during the execution of the project and in ongoing and future projects.

In December 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), Snøhvit gas field (Barents Sea) and Smørbukk 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 50 kilometres of static and dynamic umbilicals.

“Over the course of the Oseberg project, Nexans has created a simplified “package solution”, custom designed to meet Statoil’s administrative and technical requirements. In management and engineering, standard procedures and cost-effective solutions have been developed and can be repeatedly used on future projects”, says Project manager Liv Molvik Lundegaard of Nexans.

The umbilicals delivered by Nexans have been manufactured at Nexans’ specialized facility in Halden, Norway.
