Shell awards additional umbilical cable to Nexans

The Coulomb umbilical cable comprises four 1-in steel tubes and eight half-inch steel tubes, to transport hydraulic fluids for well control, and three electrical quads for supplying electrical power and telecommunication signals from the NaKika host platform to the subsea wells.
