Oceaneering International, Inc. announced that it secured in June a contract from Esso Exploration Angola (Block 15) Limited, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, to supply umbilicals for the Kizomba Satellites development located in Block 15 offshore Angola, West Africa.
The order is for electro-hydraulic steel tube control umbilicals totaling approximately 34 kilometers (21 miles) in length and a hardwired communication link (HCL) umbilical about 15 kilometers (9.5 miles) in length. Product manufacturing is planned to be performed at the Oceaneering Multiflex facility in Panama City, Florida.
The control umbilicals will be used to transmit hydraulic control fluids, chemicals, and electrical power signals to operate and monitor subsea wells and manifolds for the development of the Mavacola and Clochas fields in Block 15. The HCL umbilical will be utilized for communication between the Kizomba A and Kizomba B Floating Production Storage and Offloading systems.
