Oceaneering delivers and installs Petrobras’ Cottonwood umbilicalProjects and Operations // December 21, 2006
Oceaneering International in the US delivered and installed a 17.5 mile, steel tube umbilical in the Cottonwood field for Petrobras America.
The umbilical was manufactured at the Oceaneering Multiflex plant in Panama City, Florida and was installed using Ocean Intervention II, a dynamically positioned (ABS 2) multi-service vessel.
Cottonwood, located in 2,200ft of water at Garden Banks 244, is a two-well, subsea development being tied back to a fixed platform in East Cameron 373.
The umbilical consists of two electrical quads for power and signal operations and eleven super duplex steel tubes for hydraulic power and chemical injection.
