Oilfield technology firm, Airborne Oil & Gas, has started a qualification of a TCP Riser for deepwater and dynamic applications for a major operator in South America in collaboration with Subsea 7, effective today, June 26, 2018.

As a leader in the manufacturing of Thermoplastic Composite Pipe (TCP), Airborne Oil & Gas has developed The TCP Riser qualification program, aimed to provide a disruptive new riser pipe technology for operators with international deepwater applications.

The TCP Riser design delivers the lowest cost solution for total installation in comparison to existing solutions, while offering maximum flexibility to operators in terms of subsea configuration and choice of installation vessel.

“We believe that the TCP Riser can become a compelling solution for future deepwater fields," said Ivan Cruz, Technology Manager at Subsea 7. "The technology has a disruptive potential as a fundamentally simple pipe, and a straightforward solution that equally removes the need for buoyancy requirements.  Working with Airborne Oil & Gas, the collaboration with Subsea 7 brings together both design and installation technology expertise for the provision of complete Riser solutions for our clients.”
