JDR Cable Systems Ltd. has been awarded two subsea production umbilical (SPU) contracts; one from Subsea 7 for the Medway Development and the other from Wintershall Netherlands for the Kotter field development both in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.
The Medway Development project aims to extend the life and increase production of the De Ruyter oil and gas field until 2020. It is due on stream by the fourth quarter of 2011. De Ruyter is operated by Aberdeen's Dana Petroleum, which also holds a 50% interest.
Dana Petroleum awarded Subsea 7 the subsea contract for the tie-back of two subsea wells along with dedicated flowlines and umbilicals from the Van Nes and Van Ghent fields to the De Ruyter platform.
The scope awarded to JDR by Subsea 7 includes a 150m riser umbilical to the De Ruyter platform, one 8 km umbilical linking the De Ruyter platform to Van Nes field and a 5 km umbilical linking the platform to the Van Ghent field.
Wintershall Netherlands chose JDR to supply two subsea production umbilicals. The scope awarded to JDR includes one 10 km umbilical linking platform to manifold and a shorter 200 m umbilical linking manifold to manifold. The SPU's will be installed at Wintershall's K18-Golf reservoir in the Kotter field which is located in the Dutch sector of the North Sea 50 km west of Den Helder, Netherlands.
Both packages will be delivered in 2011 from JDR's Hartlepool facility in the UK.
