Petronas of Malaysia awarded Airborne Oil & Gas with Technology Readiness Level 6, following the monitoring of the world’s first successful TCP Flowline for hydrocarbon service in Malaysia.
Back in 2012, Petronas contracted Airborne to supply non-metallic pipe in order to do away with all of their corrosion issues on their infield pipelines.
Airborne completed an extensive 5 year qualification program which included pipe testing as well as offshore installation trials. In 2017 Petronas installed a #TCP Flowline pilot in Malaysia on hydrocarbon (full well bore) service, as a world’s first.
The Ijmuiden-based company worked together closely with Petronas and the offshore installation contractor to ensure proper and smooth installation of the world’s first TCP Flowline – with great success.
