Aker Solutions to supply umbilicals for Chevron
Aker Solutions will provide umbilicals for the second stage of the Jack and St. Malo development, operated by Chevron USA Inc. in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The two electro-hydraulic dynamic steel tube umbilicals will each measure 80,000 ft (24,384 m) in length and will be used to control a subsea production system. Aker Solutions will also provide the associated hardware, including terminations, bend stiffeners and buoyancy modules. The umbilicals will be installed at a depth of 7,500 ft (2,286 m).
Aker Solutions supplied umbilicals to Chevron USA for the initial stage of the Jack and St. Malo development, which is scheduled to go on production next year. The estimated project execution time is about two years, with load-out scheduled for 2016.
