TECHNOLOGY Flexible Pipe: Advantages & Installation

Technical Advantages:

  • No rust.
  • It's very flexible.
  • The flexible pipe can be introduced into existing steel pipe.
  • Minimum pressure lost by rubbing (0.00005 rugosity).
  • It retards or nullifies parafins and asphaltenes deposits.
  • Minimum temperature lost by heat transfer (3.1 btu in / hrft2f).
  • Lower height than steel (0.36 to 2.1 lbs / ft).
  • High resistance to corrosive fluids of well ending and CO2 and H2S fo deposit.
  • Easier transport and installation.
  • It improves flow capacity.
  • It doesn't require maintenance.

Summary:

Non-metallic pipe using offers an alternative for lines rehabilitation where problems in way rights are. Costs of maintenance are minimum. Costs and installation times are reduced considerably. They offer operations advantages. They practically eliminate solids deposits. They offer advantages in corrosive fluids. 4 pipe classes exist according  to service type, pressure and temperature. The pipe can be reused when operation is finished. It can be interconnected to any production and transport system. It offers a wide cost-benefit in comparison with metallic pipe lifetime. It doesn't need x-ray for welding in the pipe body.
