Dutch manufacturer Strohm has secured its third and largest ever contract for pipe supply, to be provided for ExxonMobil’s 250,000 barrels per day Whiptail development project offshore Guyana. 

Strohm will supply its TCP (thermoplastic composite pipe) “Jumper on Demand” for the project. Strohm’s April 16 announcement indicated that the award is the “largest commercial award for pipe supply in [its] 16-year history.” This follows the greenlighting of the project by the Guyana government; and subsequent final investment decisions (FID) by the Stabroek Block co-venturers.

Strohm said the TCP will be produced at its Netherlands manufacturing facility. The pipes will be used for water and gas injection. 

Strohm said the technology will be supplied by Exxon in a single, continuous length along with associated pipe-handling equipment.

“This concept and delivery method allows the individual 24 jumpers to be cut to the desired length, terminated, and tested onsite in Guyana, providing flexibility to the end-user,” the company said. 

The jumpers, made of carbon fiber and PA12 polymer, will be installed at water depths over 1,600 meters and will operate at pressures of 10,000 psi.

Gavin Leiper, Strohm’s vice president Americas & Global Field Services Group, said: “This latest award brings us to a total of over 70 jumpers across three developments in Guyana’s Stabroek Block. Not only is this our largest award to date, but it also means we will be terminating TCP and supporting ExxonMobil Guyana and its co-venturers for at least the next five years under our field service group contract.”
