Chevron North Sea has awarded Airborne Oil & Gas (AOG) a contract for multiple high pressure flexible jumpers for the Alder project.
Contributing to the development of thermoplastic composite risers through participation in a Joint Industry Project formed in 2009, Chevron claims the flexible jumpers will be the first thermoplastic pipes to be used the North Sea, UK.
Bart Steuten, MSc, Business Development Manager, Airborne Oil and Gas commented “The Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP) technology provides benefits in offshore flowline, jumper and spool applications. The TCP does not corrode, is lightweight and avoids metrology, reducing installation cost significantly. We supply offshore flowlines up to 3000 metres per spool which, combined with fast installation and effective on-bottom stability measures, reduce total installed cost for the operator. The lack of corrosion further reduces maintenance cost and ensures asset integrity.”
