JDR, a leading provider of technology connecting the global offshore energy industry, has won a umbilical contract with Swiber Offshore Construction Pte Ltd for deployment in the Brunei Shell Petroleum Champion Field. Brunei Shell Petroleum, one of Asia’s biggest energy companies, will use JDR’s umbilicals to redevelop the Champion field as part of their Waterflood Project to increase oil recovery.
The agreement will see JDR provide ten custom designed umbilicals totalling 13 kilometres that will be used at water depths of up to 32 metres.
Paul Gahm, VP Sales and Marketing at JDR, commented: “This contract win is the latest in a long-term relationship with Brunei Shell Petroleum, following two previous umbilical contracts for the Champion field complex. It confirms JDR’s position as the preferred umbilical vendor for the Asia Pacific region and is testament to the investment we have made over the last two years in our state-of-the art umbilical plant in Hartlepool, UK.”
He continued: “Our highly experienced operating team will now execute this project, which is due for loadout in mid-2013. We will provide ongoing support through our AIM Services, which enables us to provide 24/7 aftermarket, installation and maintenance through our global network of highly experienced and fully certified technicians.”
Mr Joseph Chen, VP Swiber Brunei: “JDR were the only umbilical provider that was prepared to meet the tight deadlines to roll out this project in order to maximise our return from the Champion Field. We’re delighted with JDR for agreeing to work with us on this complex project with tight delivery deadlines.”
