Nexans to supply Devenick umbilicals
BP has awarded Nexans a $19.4 million-plus contract to supply a subsea umbilical system for the Devenick gas field in the UK North Sea.
PARIS -- BP has awarded Nexans a $19.4 million-plus contract to supply a subsea umbilical system for the Devenick gas field in the UK North Sea.
Devenick is 37 km (23 mi) north of the Marathon-operated East Brae platform. Nexans’ package will comprise four umbilicals -- one SSIV (Subsea Isolation Valve) umbilical, one main umbilical, and two infield umbilicals.
All will be manufactured at the company’s factory in Halden, Norway, and delivered in spring 2011. Nexans will supply supplementary fiber-optic and electrical elements from its Norwegian plant in Rognan.
The contract is in addition to the frame agreement that Nexans signed with BP Exploration Production in 2009.
Devenick is a high-pressure, high-temperature, gas condensate field located in UK blocks 9/24b and 9/29a. Along the nominal route centerline, water depth varies from 112.5 m (369 ft) LAT (Lowest Astronomical Tide) at the 9/24b-4 well to 131.5 m (431 ft) LAT in a broad in-filled channel north of East Brae.
The field will be developed initially via two wells (S1 and S2) connected to a subsea manifold.
