Strohm’s thermoplastic composites pipe installed on giant Liza field in the Americas

Strohm The Netherlands headquartered company announced that its first deep-water / high pressure thermoplastic composites pipe (TCP) Jumper in South America has been successfully installed, commissioned and is up and running for ExxonMobil Guyana at its Liza field.

The Jumper, incorporating advanced carbon fiber and polyamide12 materials, is used for Water Alternating Gas (WAG) injection and was installed in depths over 1,700m for the supermajor, after being landed and leak tested subsea.

Strohm was awarded two significant contracts for the Uaru and Yellowtail developments, where the company is to supply a total of 50 of its WAG TCP Jumpers across the two campaigns. These projects are delivered under the firm’s Jumpers on Demand approach, where a single length of pipe is delivered on a single reel to the client’s location, thereupon the pipe is spooled off to the desired jumper length, cut, terminated, tested and mated with a connector system.

Strohm’s TCP Jumper avoids the need for metrology, thereby shortening time to first oil and reducing installation cost further. The flexibility to terminate in country, creates redundancy and de-risks any project schedule.
