JDR umbilicals to connect Western Offshore wells
Cameron has awarded JDR a steel tube umbilical contract on behalf of ONGC for the Western Offshore project in India’s Mumbai High region.
The development involves subsea completion of 11 oil and gas wells at the Mumbai High, Bassein and Satellite, and Neelam/Heera facilities.
These wells are either at an infield location or on an extension of existing fields, including marginal pools that will be connected to the nearest host facility, all in water depths up to 100 m (328 ft).
Carl Pilmer, JDR sales director Oil and Gas, said: “Our proposal included a combination of steel tube and hybrid umbilicals…”
JDR’s scope of supply includes project management, engineering, and manufacture of 11 umbilicals, with a combined length of more than 53 km (35 mi) subsea terminations and accessories.
The umbilicals will be manufactured using a helical assembly machine at the company’s plant in Hartlepool, northeast England. They are expected to be delivered this fall.
