Abu Dhabi’s Nasr II Oil Field to be Powered by 3 000 km of Nexans Cables

  • Following the first cable supply contract awarded in 2015, Nexans was chosen as the sole cable supplier of Hyundai Heavy Industries, the EPC contractor for the second package of the Nasr Phase II Full Field Development Project off the coast of Abu Dhabi in the Persian Gulf.

  • Nexans Kukdong will deliver 3 000 km of low voltage and medium voltage power cables, instrumentation cable and communication cables, which equals to almost one quarter of the Earth’s diameter in length.

  • The innovations of the project include fire resistance with water spray for all fire type instrumentation cables and other cutting-edge solutions for Oil & Gas industry.

 

Paris La Défense, October 24, 2017 – The Nasr field is a large oil field located approximately 130 km northwest off the coast of Abu Dhabi City in United Arab Emirates. In the framework of the Nasr Phase II Full Field Development Project, aimed at almost tripling the field’s oil production capacity to 65 000 barrels per day, Nexans was selected by the EPC contractor Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) as the sole cable supplier for the second and most crucial package of the project.

Abu Dhabi’s Nasr II Oil Field to be Powered by 3 000 km of Nexans CablesThe second package of the Nasr Phase II Full Field Development Project involves the installation of a multi-platform super complex integrating a gas treatment platform, a separation platform, an accommodation platform, utilities, flares, and bridges. All engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning work is carried out by HHI who chose to power the new complex with Nexans’ full range of cables from 250 V to 132 kV power cables, instrumentation cables and communication cables.

Nexans Kukdong will supply a total of 3 000 km of medium (MV) and low voltage (LV) cables and instrumentation cables, which equals to almost one quarter of the Earth’s diameter in length. Nexans cables fully meet the customer specifications as well as the strictest IEC, BS and NEK standards and include several innovations, such as fire resistance with water spray for all fire type instrumentation cables, enhanced foundation fieldbus cable with oil resistance, and HYPRON® cabling solutions with lead-free sheath applied to LV/MV (250 V to 32 kV) cables and instrumentation cables.

In September 2015, Nexans had already been awarded the first cable supply contract by HHI for delivery of 132 kV XLPE insulated three-core subsea power cable for the first phase of the Nasr Oil Field project. The cable is manufactured at Nexans specialized facility in Halden, Norway and will be delivered to Hyundai Heavy Industries in 2017.

“We feel honoured that Hyundai Heavy Industries have chosen Nexans’ solutions and entrusted us once again with a contract for full cable supply for this large-scale project,” said Julien Hueber, CEO of Nexans Kukdong. “This success is undoubtedly the result of dedication and cooperation of our team as well as our commitment to client service.”

The MV/LV power cables and instrumentation cables for the second phase of the offshore project will be produced at Nexans plant in Jincheon, Korea for the completion of construction in the HHI shipyard by June 2018.
