Nexans Norway will supply static and dynamic umbilicals and accessories for a deep-water oil and gas production development in the United States. The project is part of a five-year frame agreement between BP and Nexans for the worldwide supply of umbilical and direct electrical heating (DEH) cables.
Nexans will supply its umbilicals for the second stage development of BP’s Mad Dog offshore field in the Gulf of Mexico. The Mad Dog 2 project is a deep-water oil and gas production development located in the Southern Green Canyon area of Gulf of Mexico, approximately 320 km south of New Orleans, Louisiana.
The products will be deployed in water depths from approximately 1,280 m to 2,160 m to connect the field to the floating production unit (FPU). The scope of work includes three different umbilical designs integrating hydraulic, data and fibre optic services.
The electrical and fibre optic elements will be manufactured at Nexans Norway plant in Rognan, Norway and the umbilicals will be developed, manufactured and tested at Nexans Norway plant in Halden, Norway.
Nexans employs more than 26,000 people with industrial footprint in 34 countries and commercial activities worldwide. In 2017, the company generated €6.4 billion in sales. Nexans is listed on Euronext Paris.
