Oceaneering International has secured a contract from Anadarko Petroleum Corporation to supply the umbilical for the oil firm’s Constellation subsea tieback in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Oceaneering said on Thursday that the contract is for a dynamic and static electro-hydraulic steel tube control umbilical, and associated hardware.
The company plans to design and manufacture the umbilical at its facility in Panama City, Florida.
The umbilical is expected to be tied back to Anadarko’s 100%-owned Constitution spar platform.
The control umbilical for the Constellation project is expected to be used to transmit hydraulic control fluid and chemicals, as well as provide the electrical power and fiber optic requirements to operate and monitor the subsea wells which are located in approximately 1,370 meters (4,500 feet) of water within Green Canyon Block 627, the company added.
Anadarko said earlier this year that development drilling at the Constellation site was scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2017 with first production forecasted in late 2018.
