Oceaneering to deliver umbilicals for Johan Castberg
Oceaneering International Inc. has secured a contract from Statoil Petroleum AS to supply umbilicals for the Johan Castberg project in the Barents Sea.
The contract is for dynamic and static control umbilicals, totaling about 39 km (24 mi) in length, and associated hardware. The control umbilicals are expected to be used to transmit hydraulic control fluid and chemicals, as well as provide the electrical power and fiber-optic requirements to operate and monitor the subsea wells, which are in about 400 m (1,312 ft) of water. The umbilicals are expected to be tied back to an FPSO.
Oceaneering plans to design and manufacture the umbilicals at its facility in Rosyth, Scotland, with delivery scheduled for early 2021.
