Alcatel-Lucent to deliver subsea connections study for Johan Castberg

Oil and gas company Statoil has contracted Alcatel-Lucent Submarine Networks (ASN), now part of Nokia, to conduct a concept study of the integration of ASN’s direct current, fiber optical (DC/FO) technology as subsea control infrastructure for the Johan Castberg field in the Barents Sea.

The DC/FO technology is a solution developed and qualified in cooperation with Statoil, and has now been selected by Statoil for implementation at the Johan Castberg field, pending completed qualification and commercial agreement.

Alcatel-Lucent said this technology would bring power and high-bandwidth communication connections to submerged equipment.

Yohann Bénard, Oil & Gas General Manager at ASN, said: “DC/FO is a breakthrough technology now available to oil companies for the design of their subsea production architectures. Its selection in the base case for the Johan Castberg field confirms that such a solution meets the needs of advanced field architects.”

“It (DC/FO) also demonstrates that ASN can make a difference in the oil & gas environment, combining its world-class expertise in subsea product design and marine operations to supply very innovative, cost effective and highly reliable subsea communication and powering solutions.”

Earlier in 2016, Statoil contracted Aker Solutions to provide a concept study for a floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Johan Castberg oil field development in the Barents Sea.
