Oceaneering grabs Constellation prize

Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 06 April 2017 13:16

Oceaneering International secured a contract from Anadarko Petroleum to supply the umbilical for Anadarko’s Constellation subsea tieback in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The contract is for a dynamic and static electro-hydraulic steel tube control umbilical, and associated hardware. Oceaneering plans to design and manufacture the umbilical at its facility in Panama City, Florida.

The control umbilical for the Constellation project is expected to be used to transmit hydraulic control fluid and chemicals, as well as provide the electrical power and fiber optic requirements to operate and monitor the subsea wells which are in approximately 1370m (4500ft) of water within Green Canyon Block 627.

The umbilical is expected to be tied back to Anadarko’s Constitution spar.

Development drilling at Constellation is scheduled to start in Q2 2017, with first production forecasted in late 2018.
