Subsea cable supplier provider JDR has secured a contract from Petrogas E&P Netherlands to supply two umbilicals for the A15 and B10 gas fields offshore the Netherlands.
Located in quads A and B, in a shallow water depth of 115ft, the two offshore conventional gas fields are expected to recover 17.25 million barrels of oil equivalent, including 103.5 billion standard cubic feet of natural gas reserves.
Under the contract, JDR will be responsible for engineering, designing, and manufacturing two subsea umbilicals, that range from 10km to 13km in length.
The subsea umbilicals will provide vital power to two new platforms located at the A/B shallow gas field.
The umbilicals will feature chemical injection hoses, hydraulic hoses, electrical cables, and fibre optic cables to allow communication between the platforms.
Furthermore, JDR will deliver topside umbilical termination unit pull-in heads, hang-off bodies, and umbilical termination assemblies for the project.
JDR senior sales manager Rory Graham said: “We’re delighted to be selected by Petrogas for this critical project at a time when energy security couldn’t be more important in Europe.
“The demand for natural gas is high and we’re here to support our customers in ensuring production is maintained while oil and gas remains a vital part of the energy mix, and as the industry journeys through the energy transition.
“We’ll manufacture all the cables at our facilities here in the UK and our technical team of experts will be fundamental in ensuring we meet the swift turnaround time.”
JDR plans to manufacture the umbilical, topside terminations, and additional subsea equipment at its Hartlepool facility in England.
The hydraulic hoses and LV cables are planned to be manufactured in JDR’s Littleport facility.
Petrogas E&P Netherlands general manager Nick Dancer said: “We’re looking forward to working with JDR and contributing additional domestic gas to support Europe during the current energy crisis.”
