Strohm has supplied TotalEnergies with a TCP Jumper commissioned in the Egina field in the deep water of 1,600 meters in Nigeria.

The installation followed a rigorous testing program during which TotalEnergies qualified the TCP Jumper for permanent subsea applications. All pre-deployment inspections and tests were passed, certifying it for its full life cycle on schedule.

A local Nigerian subsea services provider supported the installation of Strohm’s 5.2” ID, 340 bar design pressure TCP Jumper in the Egina field.

According to the company, the pipe’s lightweight properties allowed it to be transported by a small, multi-purpose vessel and installed by local contractors, reducing carbon emissions and costs. Strohm personnel was mobilized offshore to assist in the installation process.

Martin van Onna, Strohm CEO, said: “We are immensely proud to see our first TCP Jumper for our highly valued client TotalEnergies installed and operational in West Africa. This success reaffirms TCP as an ideal deepwater solution and strengthens our leading position in the market.”

In terms of other recent news coming from Strohm, at the end of 2023, the company received DNV qualification for its deepwater TCP flowline, claiming to be the first player to receive accreditation of this kind from the verification body.

Strohm was also present at the Offshore Energy Exhibition & Conference (OEEC) held in November 2023, where the company’s Product Development Manager Bart Steuten gave a presentation about the production of hydrogen offshore, what we can expect in the future, the good sides of laying pipes instead of cables, as well as using pipes as storage.
