Strohm deploys TCP Jumper on Subsea 7’s project off Australia
Strohm has deployed its thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) Jumper on Subsea 7’s project offshore North-Western Australia.
The TCP solution is said to be 80% lighter in weight and completely impervious to corrosion with a high collapse resistance, offering a significantly extended service life.
TCP’s manufacturing process also has a reduced manufacturing footprint, producing 50% lower CO2 levels compared to carbon steel pipe, Strohm said.
“For TCP Jumpers such as those provided for Subsea 7’s project, a particular benefit is the elimination of offshore metrology requirements, leading to a considerable improvement on the cost and schedule risks associated with vessel standby and onshore rigid spool fabrication”, the company added.
In the company-related news, Strohm recently selected Tekmar Energy to design, manufacture and supply a subsea protection and buoyancy solution for the TCP Jumper.
Furthermore, the company entered into a joint industry programme (JIP) with Petrobras and Shell for (TCP) flowline and riser technology in August this year.
Described as game-changing, the four-year project aims to deploy Strohm’s TCP flowline and riser technology offshore Brazil by 2024.
