The largest track record in TCP in the industry

Airborne Oil & Gas has pioneered the development of Thermoplastic Composite Pipe, and introduced it to the Oil & Gas industry. As such, we have always been at the forefront of creating acceptance in the market place, initiating the creation of the new standard DNVGL-RP F119, and building track record.

To date, we have supplied TCP around the globe for crude production, gas lift, methanol and chemical injection in the applications of flowlines, spools, jumpers & downlines. We have many records including the world’s first TCP for hydrocarbon service, and the deepest operating TCP in 2140 meters water depth.

Today, Airborne Oil & Gas is the world’s first manufacturer of TCP that has commenced qualification for deepwater dynamic risers in Brazil. Please contact us for a complete overview of our track record. Below 3 examples:

Petronas’ TCP Flowline for hydrocarbon service – 2017

The world’s first TCP Flowline for hydrocarbon service. In 2012, Petronas Carigali contracted Airborne Oil & Gas for the development & qualification of non-metallic, subsea flowline. The TCP Flowline enables a total installed cost reduction of 30% when compared to carbon steel. The qualification program included, besides a variety of lab and prototype testing, full scale offshore installation testing. With successful completion of the whole program, a pilot flowline was installed in 2017 and is fully operational since early 2018.

This video shows how Airborne Oil & Gas marked this milestone. 

Chevron's Alder TCP Jumper - 2016

The first TCP installed in a permanent well jumper application. Chevron awarded Airborne Oil & Gas the contract for the design and supply of a TCP Jumper for high pressure methanol injection (12,500 psi) for the Alder field. The main reasons why Chevron selected the TCP Jumper were its flexibility in combination with its light weight, enabling remotely operated vehicle manipulation subsea. The TCP has been qualified in accordance with the predecessor of recommended practice DNVGL-RP-F119.

IKM’s TCP Downline - 2016

IKM Testing acquired a TCP Downline for pipeline pre-commissioning and acid stimulation, and used the Downline on its first project for Subsea 7 and Astaa Hansteen. The Downline, qualified for a total of 180 deployments, completed 19 deployments in its first project. The client’s feedback:

  • "The product’s light weight, ease of handling and external pressure resistance capability make it the preferred alternative for Subsea 7, both technically and operationally.
  • The light weight and robustness of the product allow quick deployments / recoveries for these particular water depths compared with conventional downline systems.”

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.
