Nexans to supply LV cables for gas field in Turkmenistan

Cable company Nexans has been awarded a major contract by Petrofac to supply specialised low-voltage (LV) cables for a gas-field development project in Turkmenistan.

In the next 12 months, more than 1,800km of Nexans’ armoured and hydrocarbon-resistant LV cables will be provided for installation at a new processing plant under construction to serve the South Yoloten gas field, where they will deliver power for vital control and safety services.

The South Yoloten gas field, sited around 400km southeast of Ashgabat, the country’s capital city, is one of the world’s largest gas reserves.

The LV cables will be manufactured at the Nexans plants in Turkey.
