Thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) provider Strohm has supplied TotalEnergies with a TCP jumper, which has been commissioned for a 1,600 m deepwater project in West Africa.
This installation has followed a rigorous testing programme, during which TotalEnergies qualified the Netherlands-based company's TCP jumper for permanent subsea applications. All pre-deployment inspections and tests were successfully passed, certifying it for its full life cycle on schedule.
The installation of Strohm’s 5.2” ID, 340 bar design pressure TCP Jumper in the Egina field was supported by a local Nigerian subsea services provider. The pipe’s lightweight properties allowed it to be transported by a small, multi-purpose vessel and installed by local contractors, greatly reducing carbon emissions and costs. Strohm personnel were mobilised offshore to assist in the installation process.
Martin van Onna, Strohm CEO, said, “We are immensely proud to see our first TCP Jumper for our highly valued client TotalEnergies installed and operational in West Africa. This success reaffirms TCP as an ideal deepwater solution and strengthens our leading position in the market.”
Strohm’s TCP provides a robust, corrosion free and field-proven solution for operators. TCP jumpers can be manufactured and shipped in long continuous lengths, stored onsite for long periods of time, cut to length when required and terminated within hours, with no change to its properties or lifespan. TCP for subsea jumpers as well as flowlines and risers have proven to reduce the CO2 footprint of pipeline infrastructures by more than 50%.
