Umbilicals provide fluid (chemical injection and hydraulic), electrical, and optical data connections to subsea oil and gas production systems. The use of high power subsea pumps (ESPs) is becoming more common within deep water production systems and this has introduced the need for medium voltage power cores within some umbilical designs.
Power CSL has developed and offers a field splice for offshore repair and termination of umbilical medium voltage power cores (up to 36kV). The field splice has been subject to comprehensive mechanical, electrical and hyperbaric testing.
The applications for Power CSL’s subsea umbilical field splice include :
Planned splicing of static to dynamic umbilical sections during manufacture
Offshore repair of subsea umbilical power cores damaged during installation or service life
