Jan De Nul Group has completed the cable installation scope for the Phase II of NASR Full Field Development, located approximately 130km northwest of Abu Dhabi.
Jan De Nul was subcontracted by Hyundai Heavy Industries for the cable loading, transport, laying and protection of three 132kV subsea power cables (total length 147km) and ten 11kV subsea power cables (total length 57km).
The NASR oil field project is part of the ADNOC strategic development programme to increase the field’s capacity to 65,000 barrels per day.
A total of 204km of cable was loaded in Norway, and transported and installed at the project site in two separate trips with the Cable Laying Vessel ‘Isaac Newton’.
Furthermore, the Multi-Purpose Vessel ‘Daniel Bernoulli’ executed the full cable protection scope including 53km of post-lay trenching, the installation of 671 concrete mattresses as well as 8km of rock berm installation.
In addition, a rock berm protection for subsea cable was designed and incorporated for the first time in the ADNOC offshore fields, Jan De Nul noted.
Wouter Vermeersch, manager Offshore Cables at Jan De Nul: “We are very proud to have been part of the ADNOC Development Project. The versatility of our fleet and operational capabilities have been instrumental in the successful completion of this challenging scope of work.”
