In today’s oil and gas industry, everyone is looking for ways to reduce costs. The selection of materials for oil and gas pipelines to transport the hydrocarbon will affect the operation cost, lead time, compliance, installation convenience, maintenance cost, total cost of ownership, etc. Therefore, in the past decade, a kind of innovative flexible composite pipe systems has been developed and applied to replace the traditional steel pipeline.
RTP (Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipe) is a multi-layers composite pipe, which has a thermoplastic liner, a reinforcing layer and a thermoplastic jacket. The potential offered by this type of product for a wide range of applications in the oil and gas industries has been recognized in recent years, such like offshore, onshore and hydrogen gas transportation.
