ExxonMobil Upstream Integrated Solutions Company (ExxonMobil) has approved Airborne Oil & Gas’ thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) product for use globally. The qualification came following a stringent and detailed assessment of Airborne Oil & Gas’ qualification test data and track record. The TCP jumper product is now accepted for water injection purposes.

Following a stringent and detailed assessment of Airborne Oil & Gas’ qualification test data and track record to date, the supermajor accepted the TCP jumper product for water injection purposes on its affiliates’ projects worldwide.

Krassimir Doynov, senior technical advisor flexibles, umbilicals and risers, said: “In ExxonMobil Upstream Integrated Solutions Company, we see potential for the use of TCP as an intrinsically non-corroding and spoolable lightweight pipe that can be used in a range of static and dynamic deep water applications.”

Henk de Boer, chief technology officer with Airborne Oil & Gas, commented: “With our TCP products based on glass fibre and PolyEthylene fully qualified by DNVGL as well as many major operators around the globe, we have built a basis of track record on flowlines and jumpers in water injection, methanol injection, gas lift and hydrocarbon production applications.”

“Following years of qualification testing, our first product based on carbon fibre and PA12 (nylon) is also qualified, and we are progressing fast with the next material, carbon fibre and PVDF. Through our continued qualification efforts and step-by-step approach, Airborne Oil & Gas will always offer the optimal material solution for each application. We are proud to add ExxonMobil to a long list of operators who have qualified our TCP products,” Boer added.

Airborne Oil & Gas has the largest track record globally for TCP. The company offers a wide range of TCP products based on a variety of fibre and polymer materials, to provide the best solution depending on the needs, pressure, service and temperature.
