Airborne Oil & Gas (AOG), a manufacturer of thermoplastic composite pipes (TCP), has secured a contract with Addax Petroleum for two gas lift jumpers in West Africa.

AOG said on Wednesday that its TCP products would be applied in the region for the first time.

The Dutch-based company will supply two, 180-meter-long TCP jumpers to support Sinopec subsidiary’s operations in the Okwori field off the coast of Nigeria within an eight-week timeframe.

This is the first time one of its TCP technologies were ordered through the “Jumper on Demand” service which sees long lengths of its jumpers being manufactured, prepared with dedicated end-fittings, and held in stock.

This allows for a significantly improved turnaround of pipe supply, termination, and installation in any location.

The scope of work marks the second order for AOG’s TCP products in Nigeria this year. The first was for a TCP jumper spool which is expected to be deployed by a supermajor in the region later in the year.

Addax technical advisor Tony Kirkby said: “The flexibility and ease of re-termination makes TCP a great product for gas lift and other applications within Addax in Nigeria. It allows us to cut the pipe to length and install quickly, thereby ensuring that production is maintained with minimum disruption.”

AOG VP for Europe & Africa Paul McCafferty added: “This scope of work for Addax involves the delivery of two TCP Jumpers within a very short timeframe, which in turn provides the support the Sinopec Group subsidiary require in the most optimal way.

“Throughout this project, we look forward to further developing our client relationship while delivering our effective, high-quality TCP technology to support their future pipeline needs.”

The Okwori field is located in OML 126 shallow water block in the Niger Delta. Although there are four fields on the block, only two – Okwori and Nda – are producing.

Addax brought them onstream in 2005 via subsea wells, tied-back to the leased Sendje Berge FPSO.
