    Nexans wins contract for trenching services in Ormen Lange field

    Projects and Operations // May 27, 2005
    Nexans has been awarded a project worth around 22 million Euros for trenching services byHydro as operator for the Ormen Lange licence group, for two MEG (Mono Ethylene Glycol) pipelines and two umbilical cables serving the undersea gas field on the continental shelf around 120 km off the coast of Norway.

    The MEG pipelines and umbilical cables will link Ormen Lange's subsea production stations, at a depth of 1,100 m, to the onshore gas processing facility at Nyhamna, on the west coast of Norway.

    Nexans will use its own specially developed Capjet water jetting system to bury them, to a depth of one meter in the seabed, for protection against accidental impacts and marine activities.

    The contract covers trenching of two 6in MEG pipelines and two umbilicals, each line being approximately 122km long, as well as trenching of one in-field MEG pipeline and umbilical cable, each approximately 3.5km in length.

    The trenching work will be carried out with two Capjet systems operating in parallel from two vessels. There will also be trenching performed in 2007.
