    Oceaneering International has announced that it has secured a contract with an approximate value of US$30 million from Mariner Energy to supply umbilicals and the related connection hardware for the Bass Lite field development in the Gulf of Mexico.

    The order is for steel tube umbilicals totaling over 55 miles in length with hydraulic lines rated for 10,000 psi, as well as electrical and armored fiber optic lines. 

    Umbilical manufacturing is planned to take place at the Oceaneering Multiflex facility in Panama City, Florida.

    The umbilicals will be used to tie Bass Lite, located in 6,750ft of water at Atwater Block 426, to the Devilís Tower spar in Mississippi Canyon Block 773.
