OneSubsea has ordered the umbilical and accessories from Nexans to develop the Greater Enfield development off the coast of Exmouth, Western Australia. The project, worth around €20 million, will be Nexans’ first to be installed in Australia.
The umbilical will be delivered in January 2018. It will be installed at a depth down to 915 m. To maximise the cost-effectiveness of the single unit umbilical it will comprise both dynamic and static sections.
Dirk Steinbrink, Senior Executive Vice President High Voltage & Underwater Cable Business Group at Nexans, commented: “We are excited to expand our reach around the world and our strong relationship with OneSubsea. Nexans has pioneered the development of power umbilicals which are a cost-effective way of supplying power, control and other functions to the sea floor.”
The Greater Enfield Project is a joint venture between Woodside Energy Ltd and Mitsui E&P Australia Pty Ltd. The oil field is 60 km from the coast of Exmouth.
