Company: Conoco Phillips Petroleum
Tratos UK has supplied a £5 million order for specialist fire resistant cables to Conoco Phillips for Phase 1 of the Jasmine discovery in the UK, Central North Sea. Jasmine, one of the UK’s largest exploration discoveries since the mid 1990s, was discovered by a ConocoPhillips-operated exploration well in 2006. First production from Jasmine Phase 1 is anticipated to occur in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the core development is expected to produce at an annual gross peak sales rate of more than 88,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. Tratos has supplied medium and low voltage cables for Jasmine Phase 1 designed and manufactured by the company to meet the necessary test requirements of this project especially for the exceptional fire resistance properties demanded. Tratos, whose primary market is the oil and gas industry, was the only company able to fully meet ConocoPhillips’ rigorous spec for this specialist cable, which will be delivered in full this year.
Designed specifically for the Oil& Gas market, the bespoke Tratos JBA® cable range is mud, fire and extreme temperature/environment (water and mechanical impact) resistant and Lloyds approved. Where durability from all equipment is key, especially cabling that may be permanently open to the elements or used alongside heavy duty equipment, Tratos’ MV and LV JBA® control cables satisfy every stringent application, specification and standardisation requirement. Tratos is one of the fastest-growing and most technically innovative manufacturers of subsea cables and has a successful track record of providing off-the shelf and bespoke-designed upstream, downstream and subsea cables for the Oil & Gas sector.
