The need for pipeline
repair solutions
The North American continent is home
to three of the top six countries with the
highest total lengths of oil and gas pipelines
in the world. Including these pipelines, estimates predict that 60% of the world's major
oil and gas transmission pipelines are more
than 40 years old.
Indications of pipeline age are beginning
to show within the United States, as several
pipeline explosions and spills have come
to the forefront of the public's attention
in recent years. Companies active in the

the 2010 BP spill in the Gulf of Mexico, has
been slow to adopt these newer materials
despite the benefits they provide.



repair of pipelines estimate that there is
a potential market of over 200,000 km of
pipelines that will require renovation over
the coming 25 years.
Composite-based solutions for repairing
pipelines can be based on wrapping and
sealing from the outside (either on land or
sub-sea), such as , for example, the services
provided by 3Xengineering. Composite
solutions can also be applied from the inside
of the pipeline, such as, for example, those
offered by Anticorrosion or composite-based
solutions applied from the inside, such as
those offered by Anticorrosion Protective
Systems of Dubai who use an aramid-reinforced PVDF inner sleeve that can be pulled
into existing sub-sea hydrocarbon pipelines,
over very long lengths, and can accommodate multiple 90-degree bends.

A wide range of composite
applications in oil and gas
Table 1 lists the major areas of composite
applications in oil and gas exploration and
production both on and offshore. As can
be seen, there are some 21 identified areas
of use and the degree to which compositebased applications are used varies considerably. The challenging offshore conditions of
ultra-deep-water exploration and production make the conversion to the use of
non-traditional materials a slow process. In
many cases, the parts mentioned in the table
are manufactured by specialist companies,
each of which has to take on the burden of
convincing the industry's potential specifiers
that their composite-based products are
equivalent or better than those using traditional materials.
