EDT has been contracted to provide floating logistics and handling for one of the most important part of the Zohr Subsea Field Development. The part of the Umbilical reels handling. But what is exactly the function of an Oil & Gas Umbilical? Well, umbilicals link surface and seafloor oil and gas equipment for controls, power or heat. They provide electric and fibre-optic signals, electrical power and hydraulic and chemical injection fluids to the subsea unit or a combination thereof. They can also power subsea boosting and compression, as well as provide flow-line heating to prevent the formation of wax and hydrates that could slow oil production.
