Airborne Oil & Gas to qualify TCP for Total

Airborne Oil & Gas is pleased to announce the start of a project to qualify Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) for a deepwater jumper spool application for French operator Total.

The non-corrosive and spoolable Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) is Airborne Oil & Gas’ answer to today’s industry call for cost effective spools, well jumper, flowline and riser solutions to deal with corrosive fluid conditions and deep water environments: TCP Flowlines, Jumpers and Risers are flexible, corrosion free, light weight and have high strength and thus enable a significant reduction in total installed cost. For the deepwater spool application, the TCP offers the possibility to save time and cost due to the inherent flexibility of the product. TCP allows installation without high-precision subsea metrology, as is the case for rigid steel spools.

Airborne Oil & Gas has been working with Total in the development of TCP since the start of the Cost Effective Riser Thermoplastic Composite Riser JIP in 2009. The project includes the manufacturing and qualification testing of full-scale (6 inch ID) prototypes and is planned to deliver qualification to DNVGL standard RP-F119 in Q1 2017.
