Thermoplastic Composite Pipe No corrosion at lower cost

Thermoplastic composite pipe technology allow for jumpers, spools, flowlines and risers free of corrosion and with substantial lower total-cost of ownership. The light-weight material that characterizes our pipelines is spoolable, can be installed using few vessel days with light vessels – and allows for termination in the field. One can cut off pieces from a TCP spooled on a drum, apply end fittings and deploy in the field.

Markets

Airborne Oil & Gas provides the world’s only high-pressure pipe that combines a smooth bore with high collapse resistance and flexibility. The non-metallic TCP Flowlines and Risers eliminate corrosion and are the low-cost alternative flowline solution.

TCP concept and benefits

The Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) concept excels in simplicity. The pipe has one simple, fully bonded pipe wall. The three individual layers - liner, composite laminate and external coating - are all melt-fused together, ensuring a bond between the layers that is as strong and durable as the base materials. The simplicity of the concept also results in a safe and reliable product due to the very limited number of potential failure modes.

Digimat Users’ Meeting is an annual event organised by e-Xstream engineering and will be held this year in Berlin, Germany. The conference will be all about “Predictable composites” and how one can use multi-scale material modelling to reduce cost associated with composite materials & structures while increasing performance. The conference program includes technical presentations from customers, Digimat experts and technological partners.

TCP Jumper for Anasuria Operating Company

Airborne Oil & Gas is very pleased to announce the contract award for the supply of a TCP Jumper to Anasuria Operating Company. The TCP Jumper will be installed subsea and used for gas lift. Deva Selva, Project Manager with Anasuria Operating Company, comments: "For this fast-track project we have considered various flexible jumper options. We have selected Airborne's TCP Jumper mainly for its light weight, flexibility and reduced total cost compared to alternatives".

Introducing weight coating for TCP Flowline

In flowline applications, especially in shallow water where tidal currents are strong and wave motions reach the seabed, flowlines require additional weight in order to ensure on-bottom stability (OBS). For light weight TCP this has been even more important, which prompted Airborne Oil & Gas to develop an integrated weight coating.

TCP Flowline

TCP Flowline eliminates corrosion and is the lowest total installed cost solution for greenfield and brownfield applications

Airborne Oil & Gas designs and manufactures TCP Flowline products for hydrocarbon production, water, gas lift, and chemicals injection. Its non-corrosiveness, light weight, spoolability and ability to terminate in the field make it the best solution for in-field flowlines, tiebacks, single well step-outs, and (quasi) static risers.

The solid pipe structure is impervious to corrosion, resulting in outstanding performance in corrosive environments. It has an inner, fully bonded, smooth bore polymer liner that ensures the best attainable flow properties while still being piggable. The thermal performance of TCP is considerably better than that of steel (reinforced) pipe. Our end-fittings are simple and robust, relying on a well-proven mechanical clamping method. Assembly of the pipe with our end-fittings is straightforward, can be done both onshore and offshore and at any location on the pipe.

TCP Free Hanging Risers

TCP Free Hanging Risers deliver significant cost reductions compared with the traditional Lazy wave Riser solutions used in deep water harsh condition areas such as Santos Basin Brazil

Airborne Oil & Gas designs and manufactures TCP Riser products for hydrocarbon production, water and gas injection, gas lift and chemicals injection. Its light weight, good fatigue performance, non-corrosiveness and spoolability make it the best solution for Deep Water Free Hanging Risers.

Our TCP Riser is supplied in long spoolable lengths for cost-effective reel lay and lowest as-installed cost. This leads to a radical 30% saving on as-installed cost as shown in the TCP Riser business case.
