Earlier this year, NBO secured the 15.8-kilometere LH 29-2 deep-sea SPS umbilical project by CNOOC deepwater development.

This is the first deep-water static umbilical project (800 meters water depth, 9 super duplex SS tubes) which realise the production localization in China after the 23-kilometer gas field static umbilical project (200m water depth, 9 Super duplex SS tubes) in 2018 delivered by NBO.

Ningbo Orient Cable also recently won CNOOC deal for two offshore platforms QingHuangDao32-6 and CaoFeiDian11-1.

The work-scope is to provide 70 kilometres of subsea cable to transfer power from onshore to the platforms.

This is the first onshore power supply project for offshore petroleum platform in China.

It also aims to reduce the CO2 emissions of traditional offshore power generation by burning oil and gas.

NBO expects the delivery for this project to be the beginning of 2021.
