Nexans introduced the first static steel tube umbilical in 1993 and the first dynamic umbilical in 1995. We have supplied more than 3,000 km of umbilicals, including a record-breaking length of 145km to Statoil’s Snøhvit and umbilicals at an installation depth of 2,300m to Shell’s Na Kika.

Nexans has completed more than 90 umbilical projects worldwide, and have pushed the technology envelope to realize complex power umbilicals, supplied to Statoil’s Åsgard project, Chevron’s Jack & St.Malo project and ExxonMobil’s Julia project.

We work in accordance with API17E and ISO 13628-5 Umbilical Specification, which contains testing, third party and information requirements. In addition, there may be client-specific requirements which we are only too happy to meet.
