Fossil Energy – TCP
Strohm has supplied Shell with a static Thermoplastic Composite (TCP) Riser to support operations at one of its Southern North Sea assets.
The availability of TCP through Strohm’s TCP on Demand model and the ability to install end-fittings offshore enabled flexible, quick and easy installation.
Strohm was able to offer a fast-track delivery (January ’22) of their 2.0-inch 10ksi stock product, including all ancillaries, to support Shell’s tight schedule.
In a mature basin such as the North Sea, the pipeline infrastructure is ageing and, in some cases, pipelines are in need of replacement. For such a situation, TCP is an attractive solution. In this particular case for Shell, the TCP could be terminated above the J-tube, allowing for a smaller existing J-tube to be used, avoiding the need for any welding or curing.
Strohm included a fast-track supply of the J-tube bellmouth, centralizer, bend restrictors, hang-off clamps, providing a full solution with a quick turnaround.
