Woodside’s Julimar pipe contract awarded to Airborne

Subsea 7 has appointed Airborne Oil & Gas for the design, manufacture and delivery of two thermoplastic composite pipe (TCP) jumpers for Woodside’s Julimar project offshore Western Australia.

The scope of the contract will include the supply of two-inch 10,000 psi TCP jumpers to be used for Monothylene Glycol (MEG) inject service.

Airborne outlined that the TCP jumpers were planned for delivery later this year, and would be deployed in the Julimar field, 200km offshore northern Western Australia.

This forms part of a wider contract awarded by Woodside on behalf of the Julimar-Brunello joint venture (Woodside and KUFPEC) to Subsea 7 to design, procure, install and commission a 22km, 18-inch corrosion resistant alloy (CRA) gas transmission flowline and an umbilical system.

Airborne vice president for Asia-Pacific and Middle East Fabienne Ellington said: “As part of our business strategy, we have been focusing on the opportunities in Australia as a major oil and gas hub, as well as an upcoming LNG growth market.

“This is a landmark win for Airborne Oil & Gas and puts us firmly on the map in Australia. Subsea 7 is a valued partner to us, and winning this award is testament to the safety, quality and cost-effectiveness of our TCP Jumpers, as well as the proven value that our TCP range of products is delivering.”

Subsea 7 vice president for Australia and New Zealand Christopher Ratajczak said the collaboration further reinforced the strength of the company’s global technology portfolio.

“This marks another milestone with Airborne Oil & Gas’ TCP technology, which has successfully met our requirements for use in the Julimar project,” Ratajczak said.

Airborne’s TCP jumpers were selected based on several unique combined characteristics: light weight, robust and flexible, improved flow assurance, high pressure capacity – while remaining cost competitive.
