JDR completes successful delivery of complex project for Santos

: 06 February 2013: JDR, a leading provider of technology connecting the global offshore energy industry, is pleased to announce that it has delivered a complex scope of work for the Australian oil and gas operator Santos. The project includes the design, manufacture and supply of Subsea Production Umbilicals and Subsea Power Cables. These products will be used to enhance oil recovery at Santos’ Fletcher Finucane Project, offshore Western Australia.

This represents the delivery of another major project for JDR and comes after significant new business wins for the Group, which included the award of contracts from Swiber Offshore Construction, Otto Energy and Premier Oil in recent months. It demonstrates the market’s recognition of JDR’s ability to deliver a complex end-to-end product.

The Subsea Production Umbilicals and Subsea Power Cables created for the Santos project were designed by JDR’s in-house engineering team. The team specialise in custom engineered systems for subsea installations and interventions at ever increasing water depths and distances, designing products to meet the most complex and demanding project requirements.

The umbilical and cable package totalled over 50km in length and were manufactured and loaded out of JDR’s state-of-the art facility in Hartlepool. JDR’s Hartlepool plant features multiple manufacture routes for both products, enabling it to offer quality products with competitive delivery times. Aftermarket support will be provided by JDR’s AIM Services, which provides 24/7 aftermarket, installation and maintenance through a global network of highly experienced and fully certified technicians.”

Gavin Rippe, Sales Director at JDR, commented: “JDR’s performance on this complex project scope validates Santos’ trust in us as a key provider of this critical equipment. We are delighted that Santos chose to work with JDR and look forward to our continued work as the project rolls out and we provide ongoing support through our excellent aftermarket services.”
