Sandvik and Aker Solutions: Delivering umbilicals to the Dalma project

Sandvik has supplied more than 100 million metres of umbilical tubes to all major fabricators in offshore regions around the world. Adding on to this is the order we recently won in the Middle East region.

The project – Dalma. End user – Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and ENI. Umbilical producer – Aker Solutions.

Dalma is a gas development project located in the northwest offshore area of United Arab Emirates. This order, which will see the connection of subsea equipment to new welhead platforms and link offshore topside equipment to the ones located onshore, is Sandvik’s first umbilical project with ADNOC as the end user, and will cover part of the Ghasha ultra-sour gas offshore field.

“We were awarded the project as a result of exceptional delivery, and we are very proud to be able to say we are now an ADNOC-approved supplier,” said John Tokaruk, Global Product Manager – Umbilical Tubing at Sandvik Materials Technology. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Aker Solutions in delivering great solutions for customers, and to further contribute to the evolution of today’s oil and gas industry.

The Dalma project will produce enough gas for the UAE to meet at least 20% of its needs for the second half of the next decade.
