JDR’s Umbilicals and Reels for West African Field Development

JDR, a leading provider of technology connecting the global offshore energy industry, has won a contract with FMC Technologies in Kongsberg to design and supply umbilicals and reels for Intervention Workover Control System (IWOCS) for a West African field development.

The project calls upon JDR’s field-proven experience across the whole spectrum of IWOCS componentry – from hydraulics to fibre optics – with 20km of specially designed JDR IWOCs umbilicals that will be deployed across nine JDR-designed reelers. JDR’s ability to provide the full range of umbilicals and reelers, combined with the pre-qualification of its designs, will enable delivery against short lead times and can reduce project risk.

The project, with a delivery time in mid-2014, will be designed by JDR’s in-house engineering teams and manufactured at its facility in Littleport. JDR will also test and pre-qualify the reeler packages in advance of deployment.

Andrew Norman, Chief Executive Officer of JDR, stated: “This contract demonstrates both the growing demand for umbilicals and reels and JDR’s technical ability to deliver for FMC Technologies in a limited timeframe. We’ve had a long and fruitful relationship with FMC Technologies and I’m delighted we could partner once again on what will be JDR’s largest-ever umbilical and reeler order. We are the global leader in umbilicals and reels and are committed to remaining the technical leader in this growing field of business.”

Integrated umbilicals and reels are used by oil and gas operators to monitor and control subsea trees during installation and for intervention activities. JDR has been at the forefront of this technology for over a decade and is now leading the development of new ‘open water’ umbilical technology that significantly reduces offshore operating costs.
