Statoil’s Snøhvit gas field off the coast of northern Norway will be equipped with Nexans’ static umbilical that provide hydraulic, electrical and fibre optic services for subsea services.
The Snøhvit project development will establish an additional well at a new CO2 injection template as well as prepare for gas production from existing templates. The new Nexans supplied umbilical will be routed between existing distribution unit to a new subsea template, Nexans said in a statement on Thursday.
Snøhvit is both the first offshore development in the Barents Sea, and the first seafloor development where all functions in the field will be controlled from an onshore facility without surface installations. This project involves bringing natural gas to the Hammerfest terminal on the island of Melkøya for liquefication and export of LNG.
