McDermott to use JDR’s umbilicals in Middle East

JDR, the UK-based manufacturer of subsea umbilicals and power cables to the offshore oil and gas industry, has been awarded two umbilical contracts by McDermott in Middle East. 

The umbilicals will be delivered to undisclosed operators for two projects in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.

The first project includes three umbilicals with a total combined length of 9 km. The second project includes seven umbilicals with a total combined length of 3.5 km. All of the umbilicals incorporate both thermoplastic hoses and electrical cables, providing hydraulic control and electrical signal to subsea isolation valves.

According to JDR, these umbilicals are necessary for the operation of isolation valves in flowlines containing hydrocarbons, in the event of an emergency within an offshore production system, and to monitor and verify valve closure.

For both projects, JDR’s scope of work involves the engineering, design and manufacture of hardware, including topside umbilical termination units (TUTU’s), pull-in heads, hang-off bodies and umbilical termination assemblies (UTA’s). Delivery from JDR’s manufacturing facility in Hartlepool is scheduled for 4Q 2016.

David Currie, CEO of JDR, comments: “These project awards confirm our leadership position in the supply of subsea umbilicals to the oil & gas industry. We are delighted to partner with McDermott on these key projects.”
