JDR Completes Delivery of 10 Workover Umbilical Systems for Statoil’s Aasgard Field

JDR Cable Systems Ltd. recently delivered 10 Workover Umbilical Systems for Statoil’s Aasgard field located in the Haltenbanken area about 200 km offshore from Trondheim in Norway.  Aasgard is one of the largest developments on the Norwegian continental shelf producing via more than 50 wells and 17 templates tied together by 300 km of in-field flowlines.

JDR was contracted by FMC to supply the package comprising 10 umbilicals,  10 reelers, 12 baskets and 20 sheaves which will provide the vital connections to an array of subsurface well control systems.

The full range of products for the Aasgard development has been specifically designed and rigorously tested to deliver an integrated system that will achieve optimum performance in a harsh offshore environment.

The system includes a duplicate fleet of umbilicals, termination assemblies and fully tested Zone 1 compliant Reeler packages providing: XT Umbilical and Jumper, Hydraulic Hotline Umbilical and Jumper, Electric Hotline Umbilical and Jumper, Landing String Umbilical and Jumper, HSLV Umbilical and Jumper.

The JDR design team engineered and manufactured all of the components needed to address key efficiency savings and an improved fatigue performance during handling. By optimising the arrangement of the umbilical components during the lay-up process, the final umbilical diameter was minimised to reduce reeler size ultimately minimizing  the deck foot-print.
