Application of Cables in Offshore Oil and Gas Equipment

Application of Cables in Offshore Oil and Gas Equipment

1.Scenario Introduction

With the continuous growth of global energy demand, the development of offshore oil and gas resources is becoming increasingly important. The quality and performance of offshore oil and gas equipment cables, as key components connecting offshore platforms to land and between various equipment within the platform, are directly related to the safety and efficiency of offshore oil and gas development. The industry presents unique challenges and requirements for cables used in offshore equipment.

Offshore oil and gas equipment cables:
The development of offshore oil and gas equipment has revolutionized the industry by making it possible to extract resources from the sea. This equipment includes drilling systems, submersible pumps, refineries and processing plants. These facilities operate in harsh environments, including extreme temperatures, high pressures and corrosive conditions.

2.The pain point analysis

Offshore oil and gas equipment cables are used in complex and changing environments, facing the challenges of seawater corrosion, salt spray erosion, high temperature and high pressure, mechanical vibration and other harsh conditions. Traditional cable products are often difficult to meet these special needs, there are easy to aging, easy to break, unstable electrical performance and other problems, seriously affecting the normal operation of offshore oil and gas development.

3.Offshore oil and gas equipment on cable requirements

Offshore oil and gas equipment on the cable requirements are extremely strict, mainly including the following aspects:

Mechanical strength: cables need to be strong and resistant to high pressure, mechanical stress, bending and abrasion.
Chemical resistance: they should be resistant to industrial chemicals, oils, acids and other corrosive substances common in the offshore environment.
Weather and Water Resistance: Cables must be able to withstand harsh weather conditions, including sunlight, salt water and immersion in water.
Temperature Resistance: They should be able to operate in extreme temperature ranges, including high and low temperatures.
Fire resistance: Cables used in offshore equipment should be fire resistant or flame retardant to ensure safety in the event of a fire.

4.Offshore oil and gas equipment cable certification standards

Offshore oil and gas equipment cables need to comply with a series of international standards and industry specifications, such as IEEE, IEC, ATEX, EN50264, EN45545 and other relevant standards, as well as country-specific requirements for offshore oil and gas development. These standards provide detailed regulations on the electrical performance, mechanical properties, environmental adaptability and other aspects of the cable to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the cable in the offshore environment.

5.Cable Selection

For the special needs of offshore oil and gas equipment, TST CABLES recommends the selection of special cables with excellent corrosion resistance, high temperature and high pressure resistance.
PEEK cables: peek cables with wear-resistant flame retardant low smoke halogen-free features, seawater resistance, light weight, small size, flame retardant, low smoke halogen-free flame retardant, high and low temperature resistance, radiation resistance and good mechanical properties.
Armored Cables: These cables provide additional mechanical strength and protection against harsh conditions such as high voltage and mechanical stress.
High Temperature Cables: These cables are designed to withstand extreme high temperature conditions and use insulating materials such as Teflon, known for its resistance to high temperatures and electrical stability.
Submersible Pump Cables: Designed to be oil, grease, water and abrasion resistant, these cables are suitable for powering submersible pumps in deep oil wells.
Marine and Offshore Cables: These cables are specifically designed to resist salt water corrosion, mechanical stress and potentially explosive environments found on offshore rigs and ships.
Instrumentation Cables: Used to transmit low voltage signals to monitor and control processes, these cables minimize signal interference and ensure accurate data transmission.
Power and Control Cables: These cables are used for power and control equipment in various oil and gas operations. They are resistant to oil and chemicals and can be operated over a wide range of temperatures.
