SINGAPORE – UMD Energy has contracted JDR to manufacture and supply a 2.7-km (1.7-mi) long subsea production umbilical for the Ledang Redevelopment Segment 2 project offshore Malaysia.
The umbilical will provide the connection from the unmanned remote platform to the subsea production control system. The company will also supply cable accessories and four service technicians for installation and commissioning.
The company said it won the contract due to its ability to meet UMD Energy’s customization requirements for the umbilical to withstand harsh subsea conditions, and capacity to deliver the project with a lead time of eight months.
The umbilical and accessories will be manufactured at JDR’s facility in Littleport, UK, from which it will package and ship the equipment by sea using a bespoke 8-m (26-ft) cable installation reel. Delivery is scheduled for May 2021.
