JDR Bags Subsea Deal from GE Oil & Gas for India's Vashishta & S1 Project

JDR Cable Systems Ltd., a UK-based supplier of subsea umbilicals and power cables to the offshore energy industry, indicated Tuesday that it has been awarded a contract by GE Oil & Gas for India's offshore Vashishta & S1 project operated by state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (ONGC).

Under the contract, JDR will engineer, design and manufacture 12 steel tube flying leads -- used to connect subsea trees to umbilical termination arrangements, manifolds and subsea distribution units -- and associated hardware, while its technical services team will provide design analysis for the project including flow and structural analyses and free spanning vortex induced vibration (VIV) analysis.

“This contract highlights our world-leading expertise in the supply of specialist umbilicals and cables to the offshore energy industry. We are delighted to support GE and ONGC by providing the critical links to their subsea control system. This contract award is testament to our expert teams who are leading the charge in developing advanced and innovative technologies for the offshore energy sector,” JDR CEO David Currie said in the press release.

The Vashishta & S1 fields are located in the Krishna Godvari Basin, 18.6 - 21.7 miles (30 - 35 kilometers) off the east coast of India, at water depths of 820 to 2,296 feet (250 to 700 meters).
