JDR Secures Subsea Umbilicals Contract with Marathon Oil

JDR has secured a services contract from Marathon Oil for the design and manufacture of seven miles of power and static subsea umbilicals, with accompanying termination hardware, for the West Brae field. 

The umbilicals for the contract, which will be delivered by July, will be manufactured and deployed from JDR’s Hartlepool, UK facility, which is currently being expanded. West Brae is located in the UK Central North Sea, approximately 140 miles northeast of Aberdeen. 

David Currie, CEO of JDR, commented in a company statement:

“This is a very exciting win for JDR and we are proud to partner with Marathon Oil on this prestigious contract. It’s contracts like these that cement our decision to prepare for future projects with the addition of our new HLM (helical lay-up machine). Our expansion will allow for further capacity for simultaneous umbilical and cable manufacture as well as expanding our steel-tube and thermoplastic umbilical capabilities.”
