Airborne Oil & Gas to Qualify TCP for Total’s Jumper Spools

Airborne Oil & Gas has started a project to qualify thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) for a deepwater jumper spool application for French operator Total.

The Airborne Oil & Gas’ TCP that will be qualified on this project targets deep water applications.

“The possibility with TCP to handle large deflections, the ability to cut-to-length and terminate the pipe at location and the subsequent installation with small vessels, make a compelling business case for TCP jumpers. We estimate we can achieve considerable cost savings by using TCP jumpers,” said Frédéric Garnaud, R&D deep offshore program manager with Total.

The project includes the manufacturing and qualification testing of full-scale (6 inch ID) prototypes and is planned to deliver qualification to DNV GL standard RP-F119 in Q1 2017.
