Airborne O&G TCP tech set for Western Australia debut
Airborne Oil & Gas TCP technology has made inroads into the Western Australia oil and gas industry for the first time.
With the contract, the Netherlands-based business will supply 2” 10,000 psi TCP jumpers to be used for Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) injection service.
Delivery of the TCP jumpers should take place later this year, with deployment in the Julimar field, located approximately 200 kilometres offshore North Western Australia.
This forms part of a wider contract awarded by Woodside on behalf of the Julimar-Brunello joint venture (Woodside and KUFPEC) to Subsea 7 to design, procure, install and commission a 22 km 18″ Corrosion Resistant Alloy (CRA) gas transmission flowline and an umbilical system.
Airborne Oil & Gas’ latest win comes fresh off the back of a number of new contracts such as its most significant flowline contract to date secured in mid-February, to a supermajor in West Africa.
Fabienne Ellington, Airborne Oil & Gas’ vice president for Asia-Pacific and Middle East, said:
“We are extremely pleased to be the first company to deliver TCP technology to the energy sector in the region. As part of our business strategy, we have been focusing on the opportunities in Australia as a major oil and gas hub, as well as an upcoming LNG growth market. This is a landmark win for Airborne Oil & Gas and puts us firmly on the map in Australia.
“Subsea 7 is a valued partner to us, and winning this award is testament to the safety, quality and cost-effectiveness of our TCP Jumpers, as well as the proven value that our TCP range of products is delivering.”
Christopher Ratajczak, Subsea 7 vice president for Australia and New Zealand said: “This marks another milestone with Airborne Oil & Gas’ TCP technology, which has successfully met our requirements for use in the Julimar project.
“Our collaboration further reinforces the strength of our global technology portfolio that allows us to deliver all-round effective solutions to our customers.”
