Aker Solutions has been selected to supply a subsea umbilical to Det norske oljeselskap ASA's Jette field. The order is worth approximately NOK 60 million (US$ 10.3 million).
Det norske's initial order is for six km of static electro-hydraulic stainless steel umbilical. The umbilical will include electrical and hydraulic functions, in addition to a three inch gas lift line and methanol injection.
Subsea umbilicals are deployed on the seabed to supply necessary control and chemicals to subsea oil and gas wells, subsea manifolds and any subsea system requiring a remote control.
The delivery date for the umbilical is Q3, 2012 and is going to be used at the Jette field in block 25/7 and 25/8 in the North Sea at depths of around 150 m.
The Jette project is Det norske's first development acting also as an operator.
"Aker Solutions' umbilical business has been further strengthened by our first umbilical contract with Det norske and we look forward to working together on this promising project", says Tove Røskaft, Executive vice president (EVP) of umbilicals at Aker Solutions.
