Nexans to supply umbilicals for West Nile Delta

Nexans has been awarded the contract to deliver 48km of static umbilicals to BP, and partner DEA, for the West Nile Delta Taurus Libra project in Egypt.

The Taurus Libra development is a subsea project tied in to existing BG Group operated Burullus facilities, and the umbilical delivery forms an important part of this subsea development.

The umbilicals consist of electrical and fibre optic cables as well as hydraulic and chemical lines. They will be designed, engineered and manufactured at Nexans’ specialized subsea cable and umbilical facilities in Halden and Rognan, Norway. Nexans will also deliver accessories for this project. The delivery will take place in May 2016.

“This contract forms part of the 10-year frame agreement Nexans concluded with BP to supply umbilical cables, DEH systems, accessories and services for various deep-water oil and gas projects across the globe,” says Krister Granlie, Executive Vice President, Hybrid Underwater Cables Division, Nexans Norway.

“It represents further recognition of Nexans as a key player in the umbilical market and builds on a long relationship between BP and Nexans for the deliveries of umbilicals.”

West Nile Delta fields

West Nile Delta project involves the development of gas and condensate fields located within the North Alexandria and West Mediterranean Deepwater concessions in the Mediterranean Sea, approximately 65km to 85km off the coast of Alexandria, Egypt.

The Taurus Libra development, discovered in 2000/2001, is part of the first development phase of the West Nile Delta fields.
