McDermott decides on JDR umbilicals for Saudi oilfield

JDR Cable Systems, a supplier of subsea power cables and umbilicals, has been awarded a contract by McDermott for the Safaniya offshore project.

Owned and operated by Saudi Aramco, Safaniya is the world’s largest offshore oilfield located in the Persian Gulf.

JDR, which is owned by TFKable Group, said on Tuesday that its scope of supply includes five thermoplastic umbilicals and hardware connecting new production platforms to the subsea valve skid (SSVS). The umbilicals – which range from 100 to 465 meters in length – will provide hydraulic and electric control to the SSVS.

The umbilicals will be manufactured at JDR’s manufacturing facility in Littleport, UK, with delivery scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2018.

Chris Green, subsea production umbilicals sales manager at JDR, said: “This award is a testament to the partnership we’ve built with McDermott. This is our fifth combined contract for the Safaniya field and truly demonstrates the quality and reliability of our products.”

The contract with McDermott forms part of a larger program by Saudi Aramco to replace Safaniya’s aging facilities with electrified platforms to increase the efficiency and production of the field. The field is located 125 miles north of Dhahran in the Arabian Gulf and is estimated to contain 37 billion barrels of oil reserves.

McDermott was awarded a contract by Saudi Aramco for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services on the Safaniya onshore and offshore field last November.

The contract awarded to McDermott included the full suite of EPCI services including design, fabrication, installation and pre-commissioning of 9 slipover jackets, 10 production deck modules, an electrical distribution platform and associated cables and pipelines.
