Airborne Oil & Gas secures 10km TCP Flowline contract11 February 2020

Thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) manufacturer Airborne Oil & Gas has been awarded its most significant flowlines contract to date whereby a 10km length of its technology will be delivered to a supermajor in West Africa.

This is the second award for TCP Flowline from the E&P organisation and follows on from an earlier delivery of a 4km product, manufactured last year.

Martin van Onna, CCO at Airborne Oil & Gas, says: “The 10km order for our TCP Flowline is a landmark moment in our company’s history, particularly given that it is a repeat order from a major operator and that it strengthens our order book on which to grow our business during 2020.

“Developing long-term relationships with clients fits in with our ongoing business plan and in tandem provides us with the opportunity to understand what is required, develop the best TCP solutions and support over multiple projects.”

TCP is a non-metallic, composite pipe that is said to deliver high levels of corrosion and fatigue resistance, along with extended service life.

Paul McCafferty, VP for Europe & Africa at Airborne Oil & Gas, adds: “The award of this TCP Flowline project from an important client demonstrates the industry’s growing confidence in our solution, and the value added benefit TCP offers to their projects, particularly where existing field support vessels can be utilised for installation. Once again confirming that TCP offers no corrosion at lower cost.”

Airborne Oil & Gas is exhibiting at Subsea Expo 2020 at the P&J Live venue in Aberdeen (11–13 Feb).
