AtlantisProject description:

  • The Atlantis Field is situated in the Gulf of Mexico at a depth of 2150 metres and contains 600 million barrels of oil.
  • Semi-submersible platform which is connected to a subsea oil field.
  • The umbilical delivery started with 53 km of umbilical in 2005 and has continued in several development phases.

Challenges of the project:

  • Water depths of over 2000 metres.
  • Demanding technological challenges with regard to the design for dynamic use.

Nexans' solution:

  • The umbilicals consist of separate electrical and hydraulic umbilicals, as well as flying leads (short, simple umbilical lengths).
