Airborne to supply non-collapsible flexible jumpers to Wild Well Control for the deepest riserless plug & abandonment in the Gulf of Mexico

Wild Well Control awarded Airborne Oil & Gas a contract for the supply of two flexible TCP Jumpers. The two jumpers, 2 inch and 10 ksi rated, are collapse resistant to 3000 meters water depth. They are delivered in lengths of 300 ft each and will provide the flexible fluid connection between a drill string or downline and Wild Well Control’s 7-series subsea intervention package.

Airborne’s TCP Jumper combines flexibility with a smooth bore and high collapse resistance. This combination, unique in the industry, provides a superior solution for riserless Plug & Abandonment ( P&A ). Thomas Wilke, General Manager Subsea, explains it: “ Our primary client, Marubeni Oil and Gas, will be plugging and abandoning 9 subsea wells, of which the deepest are at a water depth of some 7300 ft. We expect that some wells will be sub-hydrostatic, which may lead to significant differential pressures. Using AOG’s non-collapsible jumpers removes the risk of hose collapse and the related project delays. We have worked with Airborne Oil & Gas for some time on this project and concluded that their product provided a significant operational advantage.”

With this order, Airborne has added yet another high pressure product to its portfolio, and secured their first order in the Gulf of Mexico. Frits Kronenburg, Area Sales Manager, comments: “We have developed our flexible jumpers as the superior product for deepwater well intervention, acid stimulation and P&A. To date we have already won orders for our 2.5 inch 10 ksi jumpers, and now for our 2 inch 10 ksi jumpers as well. The potential is so significant that we are manufacturing this jumper for stock, enabling us to supply quickly”.

The two jumpers are shipped early November and are expected to be mobilised early December 2015. Please contact Airborne Oil & Gas for more information on this product.
