Aker Kvaerner Subsea will supply a 9500 meter dynamic steel tube umbilical, including all surface and subsea terminations to be installed in 2100 meters water depth.
"Aker Kvaerner has been involved with Blind Faith, a key asset in Chevron's deepwater portfolio, since the concept phase - this affords us valuable synergies as we deliver the umbilical technology," says Raymond Carlsen, executive vice president, Aker Kvaerner Subsea.
The engineering and manufacturing of the umbilical will be done in Mobile, USA, for delivery in January 2007. Aker Kvaerner's Deepwater business unit will perform detailed dynamic analysis of the umbilicals.
Blind Faith is located approximately 260 kilometers southeast of New Orleans, on Mississippi Canyon blocks 695 and 696. Chevron holds a 62.5 percent working interest in the field, while Kerr-McGee Corp. holds the remaining 37.5 percent interest.
