Nexans to provide umbilicals for Mad Dog Phase 2
BP has contracted Nexans to supply umbilicals and accessories for the deepwater Mad Dog Phase 2 project in the Gulf of Mexico.
Nexans’ static and dynamic umbilicals and accessories will be deployed in water depths from about 1,280 m to 2,160 m (4,200 ft to 7,100 ft) to connect the field to the floating production unit.
The scope of work includes three different umbilical designs integrating hydraulic, data, and fiber-optic services.
The electrical and fiber-optic elements will be manufactured at Nexans Norway plant in Rognan, Norway. The umbilicals will be developed, manufactured, and tested at the company’s specialized plant in Halden, Norway.
This is part of a five-year frame agreement between BP and Nexans for the worldwide supply of umbilical and direct electrical heating cables.
