Abstract: front page image
(EN)An umbilical for use in the offshore production of hydrocarbons, the umbilical comprising at least one electric cable, the electric cable comprising at least one electric conductor (18), and at least one electric conductor (18) comprising plurality of electric strands having interstices (15), wherein the interstices are filled with a metal -based material. In this way, there is provided an umbilical with a 'void- free1 or completely gap- filled conductor construction which therefore prevents water or gas migration or transport along such a conductor.
(FR)L'invention concerne un câble ombilical utilisé dans la production d'hydrocarbures en mer, le câble ombilical comprenant au moins un câble électrique, le câble électrique comprenant au moins un conducteur électrique (18) et ledit ou lesdits conducteurs électriques (18) comprenant une pluralité de torons électriques présentant des interstices (15), lesdits interstices étant remplis d'un matériau à base de métal. De cette manière, on propose un câble ombilical ayant une structure de conducteur qui est exempte de vides ou complètement remplie, ce qui empêche la migration ou le transport d'eau ou de gaz le long d'un tel conducteur.
