Chevron North Sea Ltd. reported on May 22 that it has awarded Airborne Oil & Gas (AOG, IJmuiden, The Netherlands) a contract for multiple high-pressure flexible jumpers for the Alder project. These flexible jumpers will be the first thermoplastic composite pipes to be used in the U.K. North Sea. Chevron has contributed to the development of thermoplastic composite risers through participation in a Joint Industry Project formed in 2009.

"The thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) technology provides benefits in offshore flowline, jumper and spool applications" says Bart Steuten, business development manager at Airborne Oil & Gas. "The TCP does not corrode, is lightweight and avoids metrology, reducing installation cost significantly. We supply offshore flowlines up to 3,000 meters per spool which, combined with fast installation and effective on-bottom stability measures, reduces total installed cost for the operator. The lack of corrosion further reduces maintenance cost and ensures asset integrity".

The jumpers will be delivered to Chevron in early 2015 and installed in summer 2015.
