JDR inks five-year service deal with Wild Well
- Business & Finance
JDR Cables Systems, a supplier of subsea power cables and umbilicals owned by TFKable Group, has been awarded a five-year service agreement with Wild Well Control, a Superior Energy Services company.
JDR said on Wednesday that the five-year agreement would see the company design, manufacture, and assemble intervention, workover, and control systems (IWOCS) to be deployed in conjunction with Wild Well’s 7Series subsea intervention systems.
Wild Well provides a range of services in well control, subsea intervention, related engineering and pre-event planning, and training.
According to JDR, the 7Series subsea intervention system enables operators to conduct deep water live well interventions and / or plug and abandonment operations.
The agreement with JDR includes Generation I and II of the 7Series technology. The latter allows operators to switch “on the fly” between riser-less and riser-based deployment functions without resurfacing.
Thomas Wilke, general manager of Subsea at Wild Well, said: “By collaborating, it allows each of us to focus on our respective core competencies to make deepwater operations safer. What’s more, we recognize that as an organization, JDR has many synergies with our own.”
JDR added that each company would cross-train the other’s respective employees to optimize project personnel and generate additional savings for operators.
David Nemetz, director for the Americas at JDR, said: “Establishing a long-term, sustainable relationship with Wild Well delivers on our partnership approach to our business as well as broadens our presence in deep water markets such as the Gulf of Mexico and West Africa.”
