Thermoplastic Composite Pipe proven for hydrocarbon service

We are delighted to share the news that Petronas of Malaysia awarded Airborne Oil & Gas with Technology Readiness Level 6, following the monitoring of the world’s first successful TCP Flowline for hydrocarbon service in Malaysia.

Back in 2012, Petronas contracted Airborne Oil & Gas to supply non-metallic pipe in order to do away with all of their corrosion issues on their infield pipelines. We completed an extensive 5 year qualification program which included pipe testing as well as offshore installation trials. In 2017 Petronas installed a TCP Flowline pilot in Malaysia on hydrocarbon (full well bore) service, as a world’s first. We worked together closely with Petronas and the offshore installation contractor to ensure proper and smooth installation of the world’s first TCP Flowline – with great success.

On behalf of Airborne Oil & Gas, we would like to thank Petronas for their vision, tenacity and trust in developing and installing a novel and disruptive pipeline technology. We congratulate them on their achievement and look forward to be working with Petronas in future.

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.
