Tratos UK has supplied a £5 million order for specialist fire resistant cables to ConocoPhillips 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.
Tratos provides a wide range of cable solutions for use in demanding Oil, Gas and Marine applications, both off the shelf and to bespoke designs, including hydraulic, electro-hydraulic and electrical umbilical cabling for subsea oil and gas extraction and Oil&Gas BS6883 cables.
All Tratos offshore cables have been tested extensively both in laboratory trials and actual installations and have proven to be exceptionally reliable. They can be produced to a very wide range of standards including UK standard BS6883, Norwegian standard NEK 606 and Eni Italian standard.
As you would expect from one of the world’s leading cable manufactures, Tratos cables are produced using high grade component parts, include recyclable materials where possible. A high level of customer support is provided by Tratos to ensure customer requirements are met regardless of country of origin.
