Fiberspar LinePipeTM

Advantages meet Australia's unique needs

Fiberspar LinePipe is a spoolable glass-reinforced epoxy pipe which has achieved widespread preference over welded steel pipelines for in-field gathering and injection applications. Already widely used in oil and gas fields throughout North America, it has now been successfully installed for a major operator in Australia, creating new opportunities for efficiency and cost savings in the region.

In this first Australia Fiberspar LinePipe installation, approximately 50 km of LinePipe was installed for an operator in the Cooper Basin. This line will transport produced gas and will operate at 75°C and contain 25% aromatic hydrocarbons.

Engineered to consistently reduce overall installed and operating costs, and lower safety risks

Faster deployment in remote locations: With LinePipe, projects can be completed in days or weeks instead of months. Minimal use of heavy equipment is required, and much less manpower is needed on location. LinePipe is an ideal solution for remote projects across Australia. Because LinePipe is spoolable, a less precise, faster to make and lower-cost trench can be used without padding or expensive preparation. Metallic end fittings, or pipe-to-pipe connections for longer lines, are affixed to the pipe with simple, easy-to-use hand tools by certified installers.

No welding personnel required: Scarcity of skilled welding personnel, especially in remote regions, is a significant drawback to steel pipeline installations in Australia. Fiberspar LinePipe requires no welding, cathodic protection, wraps, coatings or internal chemical treatments. Fittings, which are typically few in number, are installed in 25 minutes or less in most applications.

Corrosion-free and aromatics-friendly: Highly aromatic hydrocarbons are common in Australian operations. LinePipe is designed with an interior HDPE barrier layer to contain the fluid and an outer structural GRE layer that provides pressure retaining ability and strength, making it unaffected by aromatic hydrocarbons, or sour production. LinePipe is completely immune to corrosion.

NOV Fiber Glass Systems has installed in excess of 24 million meters of LinePipe for over 450 operators in North and South America, the Middle East, and now in Australia.

Why GRP?

The MAIN characteristics of thermosets (literally 'setting under heat') is that they require curing, when they undergo a molecular cross-linking process which is irreversible and renders them infusible. They thus offer high thermal stability, plus good rigidity and hardness and resistance to creep. It also means that, once cured, the resin and its laminate cannot be reprocessed, except by methods of chemical break-down, which are currently under active development. For practical purposes, therefore, cured thermosetting resins can be recycled most effectively if ground to fine particles, when they can be incorporated into new laminates, as cost-effective fillers.

Thermosetting resins have little use as pure resin, but require addition of other chemicals to render them processable. For reinforced plastics, the compounds usually comprise a resin system (with curing agents, hardeners, inhibitors, plasticisers) and fillers and or reinforcement. The resin system provides the 'binder', to a large extent dictating the cost, dimensional stability, heat, chemical resistance and basic flammability. The reinforcement can influence these (particularly heat-and dimensional-stability), but the man effect is on tensile strength and toughness. High-performance fibres, of course, have a fundamental influence on cost.

Special fillers and additives can influence mechanical properties, especially for improvement in dimensional stability, but they are mainly used to confer specific properties, such as flame retardancy, UV stability or electrical conductivity.

Thermosetting resins are normally used in the liquid state and solidify and harden on curing. With some resins it is possible to part-cure and then hold the resin in what is termed the B-stage, for the cure to be completed at later time.


Fiber Glass Commercial Vessel

NOV Fiberglass Systems glass reinforced epoxy piping is chosen for all commercial vessels including specialized vessels, oil tankers, gas carriers, car carriers, bulk carriers, and container vessels. The latest series of large container carriers are all fitted with Bondstrand™ Series 2000M piping.

Lightweight

Over 900 meters of pipes of sizes from 1.5" to 20" are installed on these 18,000 TEUs Container vessels. The Triple E Vessels: Economies of Scale, Energy Efficient and Environmental Efficient, benefit from weight savings of over 54 tons (vs Schedule 40 Carbon Steel Pipe), the light weight translates into fuel economy advantage or higher load capacity.


Low Friction Factors

Users of piping product have long known that fi berglass piping has far lower friction factors than carbon steel piping. It is equally important to recognize the energy cost savings which accrue over the life of the installed system as a result of the lower friction factors. The largest savings is found simply in lower pumping costs where the power consumption can often be cut in half. This efficient pumping is maintained consistently throughout the life of the vessel, due to the smooth interior of the piping not fouling up.

Maintenance Free

A properly installed Bondstrand™ is a one-time installation which can last the life of a vessel needing little or no maintenance.
