Thermoplastic Composite Pipe enables sustained low-cost production in offshore developments
Today, most subsea developments need to cope with challenging conditions like extreme water depth, sour service and high pressures. TCP, with its low weight, excellent fatigue performance and sour service capability is seen by operators around the globe as a major contributor to lower field development cost.
Our TCP Jumpers, Spools, Flowlines and Risers significantly reduce cost in SURF packages, with impact beyond the subsea scope, enabling operators to develop reserves at lower cost, for longer:
- Flexible well jumpers and spools reduce cost by up to 60% through lower pipe, transportation and installation cost. The flexible TCP Jumper does not require any metrology
- TCP Flowlines are fast and easy to install at lowest cost, with simplified riser pull in and fast offshore termination
- With the use of high performance composites, Airborne Oil & Gas design risers that withstand operational temperatures beyond 100 Degrees C and working pressures of 10.000 psi. This is achieved while reducing hang off weights of the riser by 70% compared to the traditional solution with rigid or Flexible risers
- The lower hang-off weights of the TCP Riser reduce the load on the FPSO or production floater, reducing the cost and size of riser balconies, riser pull-in and mooring systems, leaving more capacity for core hydrocarbon processing functions
- The total lack of corrosion, combined with a state of the art integrity monitoring approach, ensures continuous operation at lowest operating cost possible
Airborne Oil & Gas currently develops free hanging TCP Risers for Pre-Salt developments in Brazil.
