Nexans Umbilical for Vigdis Subsea Boosting Station

Nexans has been selected to provide power umbilical for a new all-electric actuated multiphase subsea boosting station set to maximize oil recovery from the Equinor’s Vigdis field in the North Sea.

Vigdis produces oil through the Snorre field, and OneSubsea, a Schlumberger company, has been awarded the contract to provide a boosting station that will be connected to the pipeline to enhance the capacity between Vigdis and Snorre A, helping bring the well stream from the subsea field up to the platform.

The boosting station will also enable wellhead pressure to be reduced, which further increases production. It is expected that the boosting station will increase the recovery rate from Vigids from the current 45 percent to 54 percent.

The boosting station will be provided with a high voltage (HV) supply from Snorre B platform, via the Nexans power umbilical that combines electric power, control and communications functions in a single cable cross-section.

The two-year contract for the power umbilical is valued at around 10 million Euros.

The complete umbilical system will be developed, manufactured and tested at Nexans Norway plant in Halden, Norway with loadout anticipated for Spring 2020 ready for installation in Summer 2020.

The Vigdis boosting station is a fascinating project, and one we’ve been delighted to support. Our power umbilicals will help Equinor get the most out of these wells – and we’re already hard at work to ensure the rollout satisfies their requirements and meets every planned milestone,” said Vincent Dessale senior executive vice president for Nexans Subsea & Land Systems Business Group.
