A West African operator has selected Airborne Oil and Gas’s Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) technology as the preferred solution for injecting large volumes of stimulation fluids offshore in deep-water offshore West Africa.

Airborne Oil & Gas says it 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 such as end fittings, bend restrictors etcetera. Airborne Oil & Gas will perform all related engineering including global dynamical analysis of the downline system.

According to Airborne, the TCP Downline and TCP Jumpers provide the high flow rates required for effectively stimulating reservoirs. Acid stimulation is a key element in the EOR strategy of most operators; where the flow rate is a prerequisite, the good fatigue performance, lightweight and easy maintenance ensures a good business case compared to alternatives such as steel-coiled tubing.

“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,” says Martin van Onna, Airborne Oil & Gas’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We are working with all of today’s leaders in the field of intervention, stimulation and plug and abandonment and see a strong growth over the coming period. Cost effective intervention is key to enhanced oil recovery for subsea wells. Especially in these times, where cost reduction is a central theme for many operators, our technology provides new ways to increase recovery ratios in the most cost efficient manner.”
