TCP Benefits

The ability to offer the best material for each application has a proven and significant impact on pipe material cost and ensures that the lowest cost solution is selected for each project. The unique character of the TCP technology offer specific benefits:

Application

  • Able to handle high pressure up to 15,000 PSI or 1,030 bar
  • No corrosion, resistant to H2S, CO2 and seawater
  • Lengths of up to 4 km possible, continuous lengths limited only by reeler or carrousel capacities

Installation

  • Lightweight, enabling installation using small vessels
  • Easily installable end-fitting allowing for in-field termination
  • Spoolable

Material

  • Smooth bore enabling high flowrates
  • Collapse resistant
  • Superior fatigue resistance
  • Extremely durable, due to unsurpassed toughness, impact resistance and residual strength
  • Easy repair of superficial damage due to robust external coating layer

Our products outperform existing solutions in terms of durability, corrosion resistance and total cost of installation. Further cost reductions are possible by capitalising on the knock-on effects of using TCP. These include reducing total cost of ownership due to its durability and corrosion resistance, optimising FPSO designs to exploit the benefits of the significant top-tension reduction, and many other opportunities.
