Statoil awards Nexans contract to manufacture DEH system

Cable company Nexans has been awarded a €20m (£17.9m) contract by Statoil to design and manufacture the direct electrical heating (DEH) system for the subsea pipelines serving the new Fossekall Dompap oil and gas field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

The Fossekall Dompap fields tie back to the Norne FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) where Nexans previously supplied DEH systems for pipelines to Urd and Alve.

The contract covers the delivery of a complete DEH system, including DEH Riser Cable with four power cores, Armoured Feeder Cables, a 25km Piggyback Cable and all associated accessories for connection to and installation on the pipeline that will connect the Fossekall Dompap subsea facilities with the Norne FPSO.
