Addax orders composite jumpers for Okwori
The two 180-m (590-ft) long, thermoplastic composite pipeline (TCP) jumpers will be delivered within an eight-week timeframe.
Earlier this year Airborne won an order from Total elsewhere in West Africa for a TCP jumper spool.
TCP is a non-conductive, non-corrosive flexible pipe designed for installation through a subsea pallet or from a reel on a vessel. Airborne claims its products can be (re)terminated in the field within hours, helping to de-risk the project schedule.
Addax technical advisor, Tony Kirkby, said: “The flexibility and ease of re-termination makes TCP a great product for gas lift and other applications…
“It allows us to cut pipe to length and install quickly, thereby ensuring that production is maintained with minimum disruption.”
