IJMUIDEN, the Netherlands — Strohm will supply carbon fiber/PA12 composite jumpers to Aker Solutions to support work for TotalEnergies’ Moho Infill project offshore Republic of the Congo.
Under the €3 million ($3.24 million) contract, Strohm will supply the TCP in six lengths of 90 m each, with the TCP fittings to be directly welded onto the diver-less connectors, providing a seamless connection from end to end.
The company will manufacture the jumpers, which will provide gas-lift service to enhance production, at its headquarters in the Netherlands. This was recently upgraded to increase production to 140 km/year.
TCP is a fully non-metallic, corrosion-resistant development with strong resistance to fatigue-based failure owing to the use of carbon fibers, Strohm claims. It is qualified to DNV-ST-F119 standards and designed to withstand pressures of up to 10,000 psi.
The Moho Nord subsea project, which became operational in 2017, is about 75 km off the Congolese coast, in water depths ranging from 650 m to 1,200 m.
