|JDR Cable Systems subsea umbilical.|
JDR Cable Systems Ltd. has won a contract for the manufacture of subsea production umbilicals from ConocoPhillips.
The umbilicals will be deployed in Phase 3 of the Bayu-Udan Field development in the Joint Petroleum Development Area (JPDA) of the Timor Sea.
JDR's scope of work includes delivery of three sections of electro-hydraulic umbilicals, with a total length of 29 km (~47 mi). The umbilicals will be used for control and chemical distribution to two new subsea production wells.
JDR will also provide the subsea distribution unit at the base of the dynamic riser umbilical, which will connect the two infield umbilicals. In addition to subsea hardware, JDR says it combines their products with lifecycle support through its Aftermarket Installation and Maintenance Services (AIMS) division.
The umbilicals will be manufactured and loaded out of JDR's facility in Hartlepool. JDR's Hartlepool plant supports simultaneous manufacture, enabling it to meet the May 2014 delivery date, so as to meet project objectives.
