BP has selected Nexans to supply umbilicals for the second stage of the Mad Dog field development in the Gulf of Mexico.
Within an existing five-year frame agreement, BP has ordered Nexans’ static and dynamic umbilicals and accessories that will be deployed in water depths from approximately 1,280 m to 2,160 m to connect the field to the Floating Production Unit (FPU).
The scope of work includes three different umbilical designs integrating hydraulic, data and fiber optic services, Nexans informed.
The electrical and fiber optic elements will be manufactured at Nexans plant in Rognan, Norway and the umbilicals will be developed, manufactured and tested at Nexans plant in Halden, Norway.
Winifred Patricia Johansen, business development manager for the Subsea and Land Systems business group at Nexans said, “We are committed to developing long-lasting solutions in a strongly competitive environment and over the years we have delivered many projects together with BP, including projects in the Gulf of Mexico. This contract confirms the trust BP has in Nexans, and we look forward to a new successful collaboration for the Mad Dog 2 project.”
The Mad Dog 2 project is a deepwater oil and gas production development located in the Southern Green Canyon area of Gulf of Mexico, approximately 320 km south of New Orleans, Louisiana.
