JDR Supplies Umbilicals for West Brae Field

JDR has been awarded a contract by Marathon Oil for the design and manufacture of 11.3 kilometers of power and static subsea umbilicals with accompanying termination hardware for the West Brae field.

The full scope of the award will be manufactured and deployed from JDR’s Hartlepool, UK facility where they are currently expanding their manufacture footprint with the installation of a helical lay-up machine (HLM) to accompany their existing vertical lay-up machine (VLM).

West Brae is located in the UK Central North Sea, approximately 140 miles north east of Aberdeen. Delivery is scheduled for July 2016.

David Currie, CEO of JDR, said: “This is a very exciting win for JDR and we are proud to partner with Marathon Oil on this prestigious contract. It’s contracts like these that cement our decision to prepare for future projects with the addition of our new HLM. Our expansion will allow for further capacity for simultaneous umbilical and cable manufacture as well as expanding our steel-tube and thermoplastic umbilical capabilities.”
