Airborne wins order from West African operator
Airborne Oil and Gas, the Netherlands-based composite pipe manufacturer, announced a West African operator selected its Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) technology for stimulation fluid injection in deep water offshore West Africa.
Airborne Oil & Gas will supply a 1450 meter long, 3 inch ID 5000 psi working pressure TCP Downline and TCP Jumpers, the latter connecting the downline to the injection skid and subsea wellhead.
In addition, Airborne Oil & Gas will supply the complete deployment spread, including reeler, tensioner and all pipe ancillaries. Airborne Oil & Gas will perform all related engineering including global dynamical analysis of the downline system.
According to the company, the TCP Downline and TCP Jumpers provide the flow rates required for effectively stimulating reservoirs. Acid stimulation is a key element in the EOR strategy of most operators.
Martin van Onna, Airborne Oil & Gas’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Following the other orders that Airborne Oil & Gas won recently, on downlines and acid stimulation systems, this most recent order is clear evidence of a growing acceptance of TCP technology in the offshore industry, and of our leadership position in the acid stimulation and intervention business”.
The company did not reveal further information about the customer or financial details of the contract.
