Bennex Completes Ormen Lange Phase II Work on Schedule

Bennex reported Monday that it has completed work on the second main umbilical for the Ormen Lange project. The Bergen, Norway-based company performed the work within the allotted time frame.

Having worked on-site at Nexans in Halden since January 2006, Bennex produced and installed electrical and fiber optic umbilical terminations for FMC Technologies and end user Norsk Hydro. Lay-down of the second 12-mile-long main umbilical will start in May 2007, from Nyhavna out to the Ormen Lange field. The first of the two main umbilicals and a cross over umbilical was terminated and installed during spring 2006.

Through the Ormen Lange project, Bennex has had the opportunity to bolster its international position as a supplier of electrical and fiber optic terminations for deep water.
