Nexans’ third delivery to Statoil’s Snøhvit

Nexans has delivered one umbilical to the Snøhvit offshore field in Norway, which is the company’s third delivery in a €45 million ($50.59 million) contract with Statoil.

Nexans said that Statoil’s Snøhvit gas field, the largest industrial project off the coast of northern Norway, will be equipped with its static umbilical that provide hydraulic, electrical and fibre optic services for subsea services.

According to Nexans, the Snøhvit project development will establish an additional well at a new CO2 injection template as well as prepare for gas production from existing templates, and the new Nexans supplied umbilical will be routed between existing distribution unit to a new subsea template.

The Snøhvit CO2 umbilical is the third delivery in a €45 million portfolio of standardized umbilical deliveries awarded by Statoil in December 2012 for the Norwegian Continental Shelf, the company says.

The Snøhvit CO2 umbilical has been manufactured in Nexans’ specialized facility in Halden.

Snøhvit is both the first offshore development in the Barents Sea, and the first seafloor development where all functions in the field will be controlled from an onshore facility without surface installations. This project involves bringing natural gas to land for liquefication and export of LNG.

Dirk Steinbrink, Senior Executive Vice President High Voltage & Underwater Cable Business, said: “Nexans has a long standing relationship with Statoil in Norway. In fact, in 2005 we delivered the main umbilical and infield umbilicals for the Snøhvit field. At 145,000 metres, the main umbilical remains the world’s longest umbilical in a single length. The successful delivery of the latest umbilical for Snøhvit CO2 is a further confirmation of our capability to undertake standardized and simplified deliveries of subsea projects.”
